How to Recover Compensation Following a New York Supermarket Accident

Some people love food shopping, and others would rather do anything else. However, regardless of your opinion on supermarkets, you most likely never consider being seriously injured in one. Unfortunately, supermarkets are riddled with potential safety hazards, and if you are unlucky, you may fall victim to one. If you have been involved in a supermarket accident, you are most likely looking into recovering financial compensation for the injuries you have sustained. If you find yourself in this situation, here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the primary causes of supermarket accidents?

Supermarkets are generally huge stores with a wide variety of products. Unfortunately, this means several things can go wrong. Some of the most common factors in supermarket accidents are as follows:

  • Broken or defective grocery carts
  • Poor pavement and walkway conditions
  • Loose produce
  • Inadequate security
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Improperly positioned, bunched or missing floor mats
  • Falling debris and falling items from the shelves
  • Tainted or spoiled food
  • Slippery floors from spills 
  • Aisle obstructions 
  • Freshly mopped floors without proper hazard warning signs
  • Unstable displays
  • Potholes in supermarket parking lots

What injuries are most commonly sustained in supermarket accidents?

Supermarkets are known for spawning several different types of serious injuries, including, though certainly not limited to:

  • Cracked pelvis
  • Fractured hips
  • Torn ligaments 
  • Head wounds, including fractured skull, cuts, bruises
  • Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
  • Back and spinal cord injuries
  • Fractured wrist or arm
  • Fractured legs

How do I know if I am entitled to recover financial compensation following a New York supermarket accident?

To recover financial compensation, you must first prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. However, you must first hire an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the personal injury process. An attorney will help you recover security camera footage of your accident, pictures of the hazardous condition, witness testimony, police reports and more. You must always seek medical attention immediately following an accident, as a physician will treat your injuries accordingly and provide you with medical documentation detailing their severity. Do yourself a favor and hire an aggressive attorney who will tenaciously fight in your corner. Insurance companies will try anything they can to deny victims of their compensation, so you cannot take chances when it comes to the financial assistance you deserve.
