Slip and Fall Accidents in Winn-Dixie
Grocery stores often generate a high risk of slip and fall accidents. You may be at a higher risk of slipping and falling in certain locations around the store, including:
- The entry and exit to the store
- The produce section
- The frozen foods section
- The bathroom area
If you fall in any area of a Winn-Dixie store—including the parking lot—you should report your accident to an employee right away. The employee should file an official incident report to make sure your accident is documented.

Anyone Can Slip and Fall at Winn-Dixie
You could slip and fall in a Winn-Dixie store while shopping for your groceries. Employees can also slip and fall while they are working to stock shelves or help customers. Many employees believe they must seek compensation with a worker’s compensation claim in this situation.
However, the truth is you could seek compensation with a personal injury claim in some situations. Allow Jason and Debi Chalik to go over your case if you slipped and fell while on the job. A personal injury claim could allow you to get the compensation you’d be denied in the worker’s compensation system.

Winn-Dixie Slip and Fall Accidents and Compensation

- Current and future healthcare expenses

You could work with a slip and fall lawyer to secure damages. Getting help right away allows your lawyer to build a stronger claim for you in Florida.

- Lost earning power, which may result from you returning to work but at a diminished capacity
- Pain and suffering

There Is a Time Limit for Filing a Lawsuit Against Winn-Dixie in Florida
There could be a time limit for filing your case against Winn-Dixie. Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) states that you generally have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit for injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident. The statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death case in Florida is generally two years.
There can be exceptions to these statutes. So, don’t assume that your case is no longer eligible. Our team will review your circumstances and provide a definitive answer about your case’s eligibility.
The History of Winn-Dixie
The company that would become Winn-Dixie first began operating in 1927. The company started when William Davis bought Rockmoor Grocery, which he renamed Table Supply. Over the next thirty years, the company continued to purchase other grocery store companies, eventually taking the name Winn-Dixie in 1955.
The company eventually declared bankruptcy and is now owned by Southeastern Grocers, which also declared bankruptcy. However, the bankruptcy of Southern Grocers was resolved, and many Winn-Dixie stores remain in operation around the country.
