Everything You Need to Know About Supermarket Accidents in the Bronx

Grocery shopping is among the most mundane activities that we as humans participate in. However, unfortunately, there are times where supermarkets can become very dangerous, especially when staff or management fail to ensure the premises is safe for everyone. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Bronx personal injury lawyer to learn more about supermarket accidents and how our firm can guide you through every step of the claims process if you’ve recently been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of supermarket accidents in NYC?

In most cases, as with many accidents, supermarket accidents are caused by negligence, either on the part of supermarket management or staff. Some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents in supermarkets include spills in aisles, debris or broken glass in aisles, merchandise falling from shelves, produce left out in aisles, and more.

What should I do after being injured in a supermarket?

If you are injured in a supermarket accident, it is critical that you document the accident so we can prove that supermarket ownership or staff either knew or should have reasonably known about the unsafe conditions, failed to take action to fix them, and that you were injured and incurred significant financial damages as a result. After an accident, you should notify supermarket management of your accident, call the police, ask any witnesses for their contact information, take pictures of the unsafe supermarket conditions that caused your accident, and ensure that you receive immediate medical treatment. Finally, you should retain the services of a knowledgeable Bronx personal injury lawyer.

How long will I have to sue a supermarket for an injury in New York?

If you were injured in a supermarket accident, you must ensure that you file your personal injury claim sooner, rather than later. The statute of limitations for premises liability claims in New York City is, generally, three years, which means that in most cases, you will only have three years from the date of your accident to pursue financial compensation from the negligent party. Failing to take legal action in this time will most likely result in you relinquishing your right to sue. Our firm is here to help you today. All you have to do is ask.
