An Overview of Slip and Fall Incidents at HEB

Slip and fall incidents at HEB aren’t unlike those at other supermarkets. There are usually various, familiar circumstances present when incidents occur. These scenarios often include:

Wet Floors 

Wet floors are one of the primary causes of slip and fall accidents in stores like HEB. Spills, leaks, and recent mopping leave behind slippery surfaces that can easily bring unsuspecting patrons crashing to the ground. 

Unattended Hazards

Obstacles or hazards left unattended in walkways and on stairs are known to cause accidents. Misplaced items, fallen merchandise, or extension cords can lie in aisles and cause trip hazards.

Lack of Signage 

Sufficient caution signs aim to alert shoppers of potential hazards. When such signs aren’t used in areas that have been or are being serviced, a serious risk of slips and falls is present. This is why adequate signage is a must.

Preventing Slip and Fall Accidents at HEB

Preventing slip and fall accidents is a shared responsibility between the store management and customers. Here are some tips for both parties:

For Store Management

Regular inspections, proper maintenance, and adequate signage are cornerstones of slip and fall prevention. Regular inspections serve to identify and eliminate hazards like obstructions, uneven walking surfaces, and wet spots on floors. Keeping repairs current reduces the risk of slip and falls, and proper signage should always be present at worksites within the store. 

For Customers

Three steps that can help to protect customers in HEB are staying aware, using appropriate footwear, and reporting hazards. We recommend you use increased caution while walking in the store, especially in high-traffic areas. Wearing shoes with added traction helps prevent slips and falls, too.

What to Do If You Experience a Slip and Fall Incident

Unfortunately, even when you’ve taken every precaution listed here, these accidents can still occur. If you find yourself facing the fallout of this event at an HEB, you’ll want to adhere to the following protocol:

Seek Medical Attention Immediately

If you’ve been injured, seek immediate medical attention. Health and well-being always come first on the tier of priorities. Regardless of whether you feel injured or not, see a medical professional. Some injuries may not be felt until days or weeks later. 

Incident Reports and Evidence Gathering

Promptly inform store management of the incident. Provide details about what caused the incident and ask them to document it. Take photographs of the scene, including the hazard that caused your fall. Collect the contact information of any witnesses with corroborating accounts of the incident. Take steps to preserve any evidence that could be damaged or sensitive.

Consult a Slip and Fall Attorney

If you’re concerned that negligence on the part of HEB played a role in the incident that left you injured, consulting an experienced and reputable McAllen slip and fall accident lawyer is a wise course of action. A consultation with our team will enlighten you on potential courses of action regarding your legal rights.
