The law in Florida says business owners are responsible for maintaining their properties to prevent customers and visitors from getting hurt. A failure to do so often amounts to negligence; therefore, if you slipped or tripped on a foreign substance at a Rightway Foods grocery store, the store owner is liable, provided you can prove certain facts. Our Florida slip and fall accident lawyers can explore your legal options for compensation.
A Florida Rightway Foods slip and fall lawyer can file a claim or lawsuit for you. Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers offers a free consultation to anyone wishing to explore their legal options in Florida.
How Much Does a Florida Rightway Foods Slip and Fall Attorney Cost?
We don’t charge you any money upfront to take your case. Our Florida slip and fall attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, so we only expect you to pay if we recover your compensation. You owe our firm nothing if we don’t win your case.
It’s important for us as advocates for the injured to ensure the financial barrier to legal representation is low. This way, we are able to help as many victims as possible.
We encourage you to act fast as the state of Florida generally only provides two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit under Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(a).

How Is Compensation for a Slip and Fall Accident Injury Calculated?
Compensation for a slip and fall or trip and fall accident varies by case. In general, you can recover damages for financial losses and non-financial losses in a personal injury lawsuit.
Understanding Financial Losses
Financial loss occurs when the accident leaves you with expenses. A fractured tailbone, for instance, may require surgery to correct. Surgeries cost thousands of dollars. Your monetary losses receive compensation equal to the size of the expense resulting from the fall.
Non-financial losses, on the other hand, occur when the accident causes a hardship or injury that is not associated with money. This category is often broadly referred to as pain and suffering. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that many victims fear they may suffer another fall and begin cutting out activities they typically engage in to avoid it.
Both the fear that victims experience and the subsequent loss in the enjoyment of activities or quality of life are non-financial losses. These types of losses don’t have an inherent value but can still qualify for compensation. Your Rightway Foods slip and fall lawyer will be able to assign value to your pain and suffering once they have an understanding of the severity of the loss and the impact it has had in your life, amongst other things.

Does Rightway Have to Pay Me if I Slip and Fall at Their Store?
If Righway Foods grocery store is liable for the accident, the store must pay your damages. In general, retail stores maintain liability insurance to cover accidents that occur on their property due to unsafe conditions. That doesn’t mean the store is always liable, though. Property owners and their employees are legally responsible for keeping their premises safe. When they fail to do this, it’s usually considered negligence.
Florida Statute §768.0755 states that visitors who slip and fall (or trip and fall) due to a transitory foreign substance at a business location have a right to seek damages against the establishment as long as they can prove two key facts:
- The business establishment had actual knowledge of the hazard or constructive knowledge of it (i.e. They knew or should have known of the dangers).
- The company should have taken steps to fix the hazard or defect that posed a threat.
Your Rightway slip and fall attorney will work to prove the above in addition to demonstrating under common law rules that:
- The grocery store owed you a duty of care
- Breached that duty to prevent your harm
- Their negligence was the direct cause of your fall accident
- You sustained physical, emotional/psychological, or financial harm as a result
