Things to Know About Grocery Store Accidents in Queens

Though most of us do not think of the grocery store as a dangerous place, grocery store accidents do happen, and if you’ve been wrongfully hurt in one, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and more. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Queens personal injury attorney to learn more about grocery store accidents and how our legal team can help if you’ve been hurt in one.

What are the most common causes of grocery store accidents?

Grocery store accidents can happen for several reasons, though not unlike most accidents, they are typically caused by negligence. Some of the most common causes of grocery store accidents include spills left in aisles, broken glass from cracked jars and other fallen merchandise in aisles, unsafe parking lot conditions, insufficient security, spoiled food, and more.

What should I do after sustaining an injury in a grocery store?

After sustaining an injury in a grocery store, it is critical that you do everything in your power to document the accident. First, you should call the police and notify the store owner/staff. They should write up an incident report regarding your accident. You should then ask all witnesses for their contact information. Once you do, you should ensure that you take pictures of the scene of the accident and the unsafe supermarket conditions that caused your injury. You should also seek medical treatment immediately after your accident and retain the services of a knowledgeable Queens personal injury attorney. As long as we can prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, we should recover the compensation you deserve and need to heal.

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

Those who’ve been wrongfully injured will have to take legal action within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York City is, generally, three years, which means that you will only have three years from the date of your accident to sue.
