Supermarket Accidents in Queens | What You Need to Know

Supermarkets are one of the last places you’d ever expect to sustain a serious injury, particularly due to the mundane nature of food shopping. However, as you know, accidents can happen anytime, anyplace, and if you are someone who has been injured in a supermarket accident, you must continue reading and speak with our experienced Queens personal injury lawyer to learn more about supermarket accidents and how our firm can help you through every step of the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of supermarket accidents?

Supermarket accidents happen for many different reasons. At times, they are simply no one’s fault, and there is nothing anyone can do to prevent them. However, there are other times where supermarket accidents are completely avoidable, and one negligent party is to blame. In many cases, either supermarket management or staff is liable for the injuries of unsuspecting customers. Some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents in supermarkets include merchandise falling from shelves, carelessly placed floor mats, spills left unattended in aisles, poorly placed merchandise, and more. If you are injured due to negligence, there is a very good chance you are entitled to compensation.

What should I do after sustaining an injury in a supermarket accident?

After sustaining an injury in a supermarket, the first thing you should do is notify the store owner, and he or she should write up a store incident report. From here, you should:

  1. Call the police.
  2. Ask witnesses for their contact information.
  3. Take pictures of the unsafe supermarket condition that caused your injury.
  4. Seek immediate medical treatment.
  5. Ask your doctor for all medical documents/bills regarding your injury.
  6. Retain the services of an experienced Queens personal injury attorney.

How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in New York City?

After an injury, you will have to file your personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is, generally, three years, giving the wrongly injured three years from the date of their accident to sue the liable party. If you wait any longer than three years, you will most likely be permanently barred from suing. We are ready to help you today.
