Recovering Compensation Following a Supermarket Accident in NYC

Very few people ever dream of getting injured in a supermarket, especially since they are seen as such mundane aspects of our lives. However, if you have been involved in a supermarket accident, there is a good chance you are looking to recover financial compensation for the injuries you have sustained. If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, please continue reading and reach out to a dedicated New York City slip and fall lawyer from The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What can cause a supermarket accident?

Supermarket accidents can be caused by several factors, including, though certainly not limited to:

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

What injuries are most commonly sustained?

Some of the many injuries sustained in supermarket accidents are as follows:

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

How do I know if I qualify for financial compensation?

To qualify for financial compensation, you must first prove you were injured due to another party’s negligence. However, this is not always easy, so you must hire an experienced attorney who is ready to fight a potentially greedy insurance company.

How do I prove another party’s negligence?

To prove you were injured due to another party’s negligence, you and your attorney may recover several pieces of evidence. You should first contact the store manager, who will document the incident and give you a copy of the report. If they refuse to give you a copy, an attorney will subpoena the store for its records. Some of this evidence may include medical documents, surveillance footage, pictures of the safety hazard, witness statements, and more. Do not let the insurance companies take advantage of your situation. The compensation you receive may be put towards medical bills, the cost of in-home care, lost wages, and more.
