If you have recently been involved in a supermarket accident, you are most likely now severely injured and are seeking financial compensation as a result. Please read on and reach out to our experienced firm to learn more about how we can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the legal process going forward:
What are the most common causes of supermarket accidents?
Supermarket accidents are almost always stemming from negligence. Some of the most common causes can include potholes or insufficient lighting in the parking lot, spills in the aisles, or falling items from shelves.
How do I know if I am entitled to compensation after an accident?
To win a premises liability lawsuit, you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. To do so, you will have to hire an attorney who has years of experience winning lawsuits for those injured. Very often, these lawsuits prove extremely difficult to win, as insurance companies may try and deny you the compensation you need. To prove a personal injury claim, your attorney will work to obtain various types of valuable evidence, including videos or photographs of the accident or the safety hazard that caused the accident, witness testimony verifying your claim, police reports of the incident, and more.
You should also ensure you see a medical professional after the accident, as even if you do not feel injured at the time, certain injuries take a couple of days to set in. Additionally, a physician will provide you with medical documentation regarding the extent and origin of your injuries, which you may use to prove your claim.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State?
The statute of limitations is a phrase used to describe the amount of time you have from the date of your accident to take legal action against another party. Since in New York, the statute of limitations is three years, you will have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against another party. If you fail to file a premises liability lawsuit within three years, you will most likely be denied your right to financial compensation. Do not let this happen. Our firm is ready to help you get back on your feet again.
