I slipped in a supermarket aisle when I stepped in a puddle of spilled ketchup. I broke my leg and hurt my back. The store is claiming that they are not responsible because they didn’t have time to clean up the mess. Is this true?

The store’s insurance company might make this argument, but it is often not successful. That is because retail stores are usually liable for the negligence of their cleaning crew. It sounds like you have a reasonable case, and The Law Offices of Scott C. Gottlieb & Associates, LLP, can review the facts and provide you with advice about how to proceed.
