the people cleaning floor in the mallGrocery store slip and fall cases are common across the country and happen more than people realize. No one plans to go to a store just to slip and fall and become injured. The storeowners and managers are responsible for keeping their stores safe; failure to do so is negligence that causes such an accident.

There are different reasons a person can slip and fall and various injuries that can be minor to life-threatening. Those injured in slip and fall accidents in grocery stores or public places can recover compensation for the damages and injuries. If this situation happens to you or someone you know, contact the Gordon Law Group to see if there is a case to get compensation.

Below are the three things that a Heber Valley lawyer will review to see if there is a case for a settlement for their client. If it all ties in with negligence, the right to compensation is possible. The judge will have the final say in the matter, but having an attorney on your side with experience is a significant plus in the courtroom.


Many things can cause a person to slip and fall inside a grocery store and parking lot. These are the primary reasons that would fall under negligence in a personal injury case including:

  • Failure to clean up spills
  • Failure to put wet floor signs after mopping up spills
  • Faulty floors in the store
  • Not fixing cracks and potholes in the parking lots
  • Faulty shopping carts that may fall apart while rolling
  • Wires or other equipment left out in the walkways
  • Defective doors, elevators, and escalators
  • The inventory is sitting in the aisles.
  • Failure to remove snow and ice from the walkways
  • Failure to warn the customers of any slippery conditions


Injuries are common in slip and fall cases and can be minor and severe. The damage is unknown until the person goes down from the fall. However, these are the most common injuries, and each should get medical attention, no matter how minor the damage may seem.

  • Sprained Joints (ankles, knees, wrists, elbows)
  • Broken Bones
  • Internal Injuries or Bleeding
  • Injured Back
  • Spinal Injuries
  • Head Injuries (broken skulls, swelling, internal bleeding, amnesia, and concussions)


There is no definite compensation for grocery store slip and fall settlements. Each case is unique and has different scenarios, injuries, and the extent of the damages.

The Gordon Law Group knows the tactics of the businesses’ insurance company’s attorneys and will fight to get the most out of them. The Heber Utah attorney will review all angles and get with the store’s insurance company attorneys to work out a settlement agreement.

The attorney will look at several things to determine how much to go for in the case.

  • Medical and Prescription Bills
  • Rehabilitation
  • Lost Wages and Future Earnings
  • Pain and Suffering
  • If a caretaker is required
  • Emotional Distress
  • Personal Property Damage
  • Losing the Enjoyment of Life

Winning a personal injury case can be challenging without an experienced personal injury attorney. Many can represent themselves in court, but they may not be able to get all of their earnings back from the injury.

If a settlement agreement is met and satisfactory by both parties, then the case will not even have to go to court – another advantage of having a Heber Valley lawyer.
