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.

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:
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).
