Common Injury Accidents at Winn Dixie

Winn-Dixie grocery stores are known for their quality brands and reasonable prices. Estero residents can find Winn-Dixie in nearby Fort Myers at 10580 Colonial Blvd or 13300 S. Cleveland Avenue.

The most common accidents in grocery stores are slips and falls on wet floors. An accident may occur when spills or leaking fluids aren’t cleaned up. If an employee mops up the spill but forgets to leave a sign or block off the walkway, a shopper could slip and fall.

While most grocery store accidents are slips and falls, there are other ways shoppers can be injured:

  • Falling objects, such as merchandise, signs, or displays, can cause considerable damage if they hit a shopper on the head. If the entire shelf or display falls, a shopper could experience broken or crushed bones, severe neck or back injuries, or head trauma.
  • Shoppers may also trip and fall over objects left in the aisles. Carts or ladders used to stock shelves, packing materials, and boxes can cause injury if shoppers are forced to move around or step over them.
  • Accidents are not limited to the grocery store. Sometimes, people get hurt while walking through the parking lot. Paint used to identify crosswalks and parking spots can become slippery when it rains. Broken sidewalks and potholes may cause people to trip and fall. Bad lighting at night may also contribute to a parking lot fall.
Steps to Take When Hurt at an Estero Winn-Dixie

Knowing what to do after you have been hurt in a grocery store accident can prove critical to building your claim. Steps you can take after a Winn-Dixie accident include:

  • Ask to see the manager when you have been hurt. If you cannot get up, stay where you are. Let the manager see the accident scene.
  • Request a copy of the incident report completed
  • Get the names and contact information of any independent witnesses
  • If there are surveillance cameras in place, ask the manager to save the footage of your accident
  • Take videos and pictures of where you fell, what caused the accident, and the injuries you sustained

If your injuries are severe, you need to seek medical care at once. A friend or family member may be able to handle the steps above in your absence.

Even if your injuries don’t seem that bad, you still need to get checked out as soon after the accident as possible.
