Serving Those Injured In Grocery Store Falls

Grocery stores are notorious as the sites of slip-and-fall accidents. It makes sense. They have all the ingredients necessary to concoct a recipe for injuries. From slippery floors and scattered food debris to large boxes and tall aisles, it's no wonder that people often slip, trip and fall on the premises.

Here at the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke in Connecticut, our lawyers represent individuals in these and other types of premises liability cases. We understand how a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall injury can turn your life upside down — resulting in pain, lost wages, hospital bills and more.

With more than 50 years of combined experience and a record of substantial results, attorneys James L. O'Rourke and Margaret C. DiCicco are here to help you seek the compensation you need to move forward. We have offices in Stratford and Shelton to better serve you anywhere in the state, including in Bridgeport.

We handle accidents in grocery stores such as:

  • Super Stop and Shop
  • Food Bazaar
  • Stew Leonard's
  • Price Rite
  • Shop Rite
  • Big Y
  • Whole Foods
  • Trader Joe's
  • ALDI
  • C-Town Supermarkets
  • Target
  • Wal-Mart
  • Costco
  • BJ's
  • International Farmers
  • Fish Market

Documenting All The Evidence Is The First Step

If we determine you have a valid personal injury case, we will act immediately to preserve all the available evidence on your behalf. The first step we will take is to put the grocery store on notice. This will help preserve video surveillance tapes and other evidence that may come in useful in developing the case. We will also send professional investigators as soon as possible after your accident to document the store's conditions.

One thing you can do to help your case is to take photos of the accident scene on your camera or phone. If possible, try to capture pictures of both the location and your resulting injuries (if the injuries are visible).

Confronting A Large Business Is Not Easy — You Need A Lawyer

When it comes to fighting a slip-and-fall case, grocery stores and other large businesses can be unrelenting. It is critical to have a skilled attorney on your side.
