Orlando Supermarket Accident Lawyers for British Tourists
While on holiday from Great Britain, many tourists find the need to run to a local supermarket for food and other basic necessities. Most of the time, a visit to the supermarket is unremarkable. However, an accident can turn a simple trip to the supermarket into a life-changing event. Along with the physical, emotional, and financial repercussions of the accident, an injured British tourist seeking compensation is also faced with trying to understand and maneuver within an unfamiliar legal system.
If you or a member of your family was injured in an Orlando supermarket accident during your holiday, you are likely confronting several challenges at the same time. You must find medical care for your injuries, determine who was at fault in the accident, and figure out how to pursue the at-fault party to secure compensation for the injuries and expenses related to the accident. While your situation may seem dire, the Orlando supermarket accident lawyers for British tourists at Bailey Fisher are here to help. If another party (or parties) caused or contributed to a supermarket accident in which you were injured, let us put our experience and resources to work for you to ensure that you are fully and fairly compensated for your physical and emotional injuries as well as the additional financial expenses you incurred because of the accident.

What Are Some Common Types of Supermarket Accidents?
Whether you are at home in Great Britain or on holiday in Orlando, a trip to the supermarket should be uneventful. Accidents, however, can happen anywhere at any time. While most of us do not anticipate being injured during a trip to the supermarket, there are some common types of supermarket accidents, such as:
- Slip and fall accident. The risk of being injured in a slip or trip and fall accident while at the supermarket is higher than most people realize. Most commonly, liquid spills, merchandise leakage, or produce debris on the floor create a hazard. Uneven flooring, loose mats, and cracked concrete are just a few of the tripping hazards a shopper might encounter at the supermarket. In addition, merchandise or boxes in the aisles create another trip-and-fall hazard.
- Defective carts, doors, and equipment. Defective carts, automatic doors, or other common supermarket equipment can cause clothing or limbs to become entangled, or result in customers being knocked down, leading to serious injuries.
- Physical or sexual assault. Sadly, inadequate lighting and/or security measures can increase the likelihood of a physical and/or sexual assault in a supermarket parking lot.
Who Is Responsible for My Injuries in an Orlando Supermarket Accident?
If you were injured while visiting an Orlando supermarket, and the “accident” could have been prevented, the owner or occupier of the property may be legally responsible for your injuries. Under the area of the law known as “premises liability,” a property owner/occupier can be required to compensate an injured victim if the owner/occupier’s negligence caused or contributed to the accident.
Florida premises liability law imposes a duty of care on the owner/occupier of a property, the extent of which is determined by the visitor’s legal status as a public invitee, a private invitee, or a trespasser. As a shopper at a supermarket, you are classified as a public invitee because the property owner/occupier stands to gain financially from your presence on the property. The law imposes the highest duty of care when a visitor is a public invitee, requiring that the property owner maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition given the nature of the commercial operation involved, and holding the property owner/occupier responsible for injuries that occur because of known hazardous conditions as well as hazardous conditions of which the owner should have been aware.
Am I Entitled to Compensation for My Orlando Supermarket Accident Injuries?
A supermarket accident can result in serious physical injuries, lasting emotional trauma, and significant financial hardship for the victim. When the victim is a British tourist on holiday, the extent of the emotional impact and financial stress is often compounded by the fact that the accident occurred in a foreign country. Not only must you navigate the American healthcare system but to secure compensation you must also try to navigate a completely foreign legal system. The key to a complete physical, emotional, and financial recovery is to work closely with an experienced attorney.
The dedicated team of Orlando supermarket accident attorneys at Bailey Fisher understands the challenges and obstacles you are facing, and we are committed to helping you through every step of your recovery. We have the experience, resources, and commitment needed to identify the party or parties responsible for your injuries and to aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf. Let us help ensure that the at-fault party (or parties) is held accountable and that you are fully compensated for all your physical and emotional injuries, travel expenses, lost wages, and other costs related to the accident. As a surviving family member of someone who was fatally injured in an Orlando supermarket accident, we can also help you pursue compensation from the responsible party or parties in a Florida wrongful death lawsuit.
