King Soopers Accidents
Most of us do daily or weekly excursions to the supermarket to feed our families, and for many of us that means heading to our local King Soopers. King Soopers is one of Colorado’s largest grocery store chains with approximately 147 stores in throughout the state. King Soopers in Colorado are owned and operated by the Kroger Company, which is a Fortune 100 company with over $122 billion in annual sales and approximately $2 billion in net profit every year. Every retailer like King Soopers has an obligation under Colorado’s premises liability law to keep its stores safe for its customers.

At Cook, Bradford & Levy, our years of helping clients across Colorado has taught us that an accident at a grocery store like King Soopers can happen anywhere on the property. Regardless of whether your injury occurred inside the store, in the parking lot, or elsewhere on the property, our King Soopers accident attorneys always emphasize the importance of preserving as much evidence as possible about your accident.
We certainly understand that after a serious injury the last thing on your mind is who is at fault for an accident, however, we strongly suggest filing an accident report with the on-site King Soopers manager as soon as possible after your injury. Often times this will (or should) lead to King Soopers conducting at least a cursory investigation into what caused your accident, and the report can include witnesses and documentation of the dangerous conditions that caused you to get hurt. If you are interviewed by King Soopers about the accident, it is important to not say anything that might be construed as putting blame on yourself. Remember, King Soopers has a duty to address dangerous conditions that it should know about.
Our King Soopers accident lawyers also recommend, if possible, that you or a loved one take photographs or video of the dangerous condition that led you to get hurt. This can be easily done with a cell phone. In some cases you will affirmatively notice something dangerous that should have been addressed by King Soopers such as snow and ice accumulation in the parking lot, water buildup near an entrance or a cooler, or a spilled food product that hasn’t been cleaned up. Conversely, our King Soopers accident attorneys know that what is not present can be just as important in a liability analysis. For example, after a spill or cleanup did King Soopers staff place “Wet Floor” signs or warning cones in the dangerous area, or was there adequate lighting in the parking lot as you walked toward the store?
After an accident, our King Soopers accident lawyers also recommend identifying any witnesses that might have seen you get hurt or the dangerous condition that led to your accident. It is important that you get the contact information for these witnesses, because supermarkets like King Soopers may be selective in the information they put in their reports. As the plaintiff, you have the burden of proving your case, and having the names and contact information of witnesses can be extremely helpful down the road if King Soopers fails to take responsibility for the dangerous condition. All too often, unfortunately, our King Soopers accident attorneys have seen retailers like King Soopers fail to step up and take responsibility for their errors or omissions.We Help People Who Have Been Hurt at King Soopers
