St. Petersburg Publix Slip and Fall Attorney

A Publix slip and fall accident may be particularly devastating because it can happen as you go about your everyday life. Liquid from broken bottles, spilled drinks, or leaking refrigerators can make floors slick. Produce that is dropped on the floor and stepped on creates a clear residue that can make floors slick if not cleaned up. Rainwater tracked in by customers or splashes in from the outside can make store entrances slippery. Even a freshly mopped floor can pose a slip and fall hazard if employees fail to notify shoppers of the danger.

Common St. Petersburg Slip and Fall Injuries

People often think that slip and fall accidents are relatively minor. Many times, the injuries they cause may be nothing more than cuts and bruises. However, the shock experienced when you slip or loss of control when you fall can lead to severe injuries, such as:

  • Broken bones: You could break or fracture a bone if you hit a hard object or try to catch yourself when falling. The National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) shared that an estimated 5% of falls result in broken or fractured bones.
  • Traumatic brain injury: Serious injuries may occur if you hit your head on a hard object, such as the floor, ground, or countertop, as you fall. Sprained wrists or ankles: If you try to catch yourself from falling, the pressure placed on your wrists or ankles may result in a severe sprain.
  • Strained muscles or ligaments: The twisting motion of a fall can strain muscles or tear ligaments.
  • Deep cuts and lacerations: Sharp edges can cause deep cuts and lacerations when you fall.

Not every Publix slip and fall accident leads to a severe injury. But if you were severely hurt in a slip and fall accident at Publix, you should talk to a St. Petersburg personal injury lawyer from Wolfson & Leon to find out what rights to the compensation you may have.
