Supermarkets are regulated by state and federal agencies like the FDA (Federal Food and Drug Administration), and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration).

Supermarkets in Miami and in Florida include:

  • Publix
  • Wal-Mart
  • Whole Foods
  • Winn-Dixie
  • Trader Joes
  • Costco
  • Presidente
  • Bravo
  • Sedanos
  • Albertsons
  • Safeway

Injury claims are of great concern to supermarket owners and insurers. Insurance companies evaluate each company and each store for the safety procedures and policies that are in place. Insurance companies need to evaluate risk and to do so they need to know what the grocery store and supermarket do to keep their individual stores clean and how they hold employees accountable. Much of the analysis comes down to record keeping. Employee checklists for cleaning and inspections often become central to determining fault and liability.

Supermarket corporations and insurance companies will require regular inspections of the supermarket and the parking lot to minimize injury claims and to enhance their opportunities to defend supermarket injury claims. Video surveillance is also used for the purposes of defending the supermarket in personal injury claims and to also deter shoplifters. However, getting a copy of the supermarket video surveillance can be difficult. Our Miami Slip and Fall Lawyers regularly go to court for our clients to ask the judge to compel the supermarket to produce closed caption video surveillance tapes.

It is critically important for you to select the right Miami Personal Injury Lawyer who will fight for you and your family. Always make sure to be an informed consumer – ask about your attorney’s recent results and his or her qualifications before hiring anyone.

The most likely causes of personal injuries in grocery stores and supermarkets are:
  • Food Poisoning
  • Cuts and laceration from poorly maintained and/or damaged shopping carts
  • Pavements, crosswalks and sidewalks that are cracked or uneven
  • Obstacles in shopping aisles like food, boxes, ladders, pallets and cleaning carts
  • Entrance and exit doors that are not properly maintained
  • Floor mats that are in the wrong place, worn out or missing
  • Leaking water from produce and refrigeration units
  • Spilled food products that is tracked and spread by other customers
