Supermarket Accident Lawyers | Here for Slip & Fall Victims

No one should have to fight the uphill battle for financial compensation after an injury on their own. Fortunately, you don’t have to with the skilled Rockland County slip and fall lawyers from our firm in your corner.

Causes of Grocery Store Accidents

Grocery store accidents are, perhaps unsurprisingly, frequently the result of dangerous premises conditions. Some of the most common safety hazards we see arise in supermarkets are as follows:

  • Spilled liquids left uncleared away, especially in the produce section
  • Mopped floors without “wet floor” signs present
  • Broken tiles or torn carpeting
  • Poorly placed floor mats
  • Defective entrance and exit doors
  • Aisle obstructions
  • Items falling from shelves
  • Contaminated or spoiled food
  • Dangerous supermarket parking lots and sidewalks
  • Dim lighting inside or outside the store

If you were injured in a supermarket due to any of the aforementioned, there is a strong chance that you will qualify for compensation, but you’ll first need to satisfy the burden of proof.

After a Supermarket Accident

If possible, you should try and take several steps after your accident to document the circumstances of your injury and maximize your chances of recovering compensation. If possible, try to do the following:

  • Take pictures of the unsafe property condition that caused you to slip and fall.
  • Save any clothing or shoes that were involved in the incident.
  • Notify the store owner of your injury–they should write up an incident report, which can be used to corroborate your claim.
  • Ask witnesses for their contact information.
  • Keep copies of all medical documentation and bills associated with your injury.
  • Retain the services of a competent Rockland County supermarket accident lawyer who can help negotiate with insurance companies and fight for the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for most premises liability claims in New York State is three years, which gives you no more than 36 months from the date of your accident to file your personal injury claim. Our firm stands ready to help you today.
