Slip and Fall Accident at Cumberland Farms Convenience Store
Cumberland Farms Injury Lawyer—Slip and Fall Accident
Cumberland Farms is a large convenience store chain with over 700 stores located throughout eleven states including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampsphire, Connecticut, Vermont, Maine, Florida, New York. It is one of the largest privately owned retail chains in America and their corporate headquarters are located in Framingham, Massachusetts.
Most Cumberland Farms stores are gas station/convenient store combinations; however, in 2009, the company undertook a campaign to rebrand itself with a new logo and new fluorescent green and blue colors. As part of this rebranding effort, Cumberland Farms got away from the old traditional convenient store model and began including made-to-order food services, selling fresh sandwiches and pizza. Recently the store put a lot of focus and resources into building up its coffee brand and has sought to take on the likes of Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks.
Cumberland Farms Injury Claim
The most common accidents that occur on Cumberland Farms property involve slip and falls either in the parking lot of inside the convenient store. Cumberland Farms operates a self-service coffee station where customers pour their own coffee. Often times customers are rushing in the morning or for some other reason end up accidentally spilling coffee on the floor near the coffee station. Sometimes these spills go unnoticed by the customers and employees which creates a serious slip and fall hazard.
Our attorneys represent clients that have been injured in slip and fall accidents and other types of personal injury claims involving retail and convenience stores.
Because Cumberland Farms operates their business on this self-service model they always need to be aware of the fact that customers are making their own coffees and spills can happen any minute of the day. Cumberland Farms needs to take steps to address this coffee slipping hazard. Employees should be tasked with checking the station on a regular and consistent basis. Anti-slip mats should be placed underneath the self-service coffee station counter-top.
New England winters are brutal and bring with them Nor’easters that can drop a foot of snow in the blink of an eye. Smaller snow storms carrying sleet and snow are a weekly occurrence. Like all other businesses, Cumberland farms has duty to maintain its property in a reasonably safe condition. This means that Cumberland Farms must take reasonable steps to clear their parking lots and walkways of snow and ice. Snowplowing, shoveling, salting and sanding might be required depending on the conditions.
