Is the store liable for a slip and fall accident?
If you sustain injuries as a result of negligence while out at the store, then yes, the store is liable for the accident. The owner of the store will have public liability insurance and you can file a claim against their insurance for your injuries. However, all of this is dependent on the circumstances of the slip and fall. For example, if the store was negligent in cleaning up a spill (no signage, no attempt to clean, or unaware of a new spill), then the liability rests with the store. In comparison, if you saw that there was a “wet floor sign” and you ignored the caution, causing you to fall, then the store cannot be held accountable for your actions.
