Slip and Falls/Premises Liability in Supermarkets and Grocery Stores
About Premises Liability in Supermarkets and Grocery Stores
Massachusetts supermarkets and grocery stores have a legal duty to maintain their stores and parking lots in a reasonably safe condition. These business owners have an obligation to keep the premises free of any dangerous hazards or defects that could potentially harm customers. If a supermarket or grocery store neglects to exercise proper care in maintaining the premises, then they can be held responsible for injuries sustained to customers on the property if the supermarket knew, or should have known, of the dangerous condition and didn’t take reasonable measures to repair it.
