Accidental falls due to slips are more likely, as we move through a season that often is more rain-soaked than sunny. Floors in Pittsburgh stores can become slippery due to wet foot traffic from customers, employees and others constantly moving in and out. Store owners have a duty to clear hazards quickly or warn customers about them.
A Pennsylvania woman blames an Oxford grocery store and a pop maker for a slip and fall accident. The plaintiff in a recently-filed premises liability claim alleges a Chester County food store, Acme Markets, failed to clean up a liquid-covered aisle, caused by a soft drink delivery person. The injured woman also blamed Pepsi Beverages Inc. for the delivery person's incompetence in dealing with the slippery spot.
