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.
