What Should I Do if I’m Hurt in a Grocery Store Accident?

There is nothing more jarring than sustaining an injury in an accident while doing what is typically a rather mundane activity, such as grocery shopping.

Read on and contact a Manhattan slip and fall lawyer here at The Law Offices of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about what we can do for you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How can a grocery store accident occur?

Grocery store accidents can happen for a multitude of reasons, however, as you may imagine, they are most often the result of negligence. grocery store management and staff members have a legal obligation to ensure that the grocery store is safe for all patrons. However, there are times when these parties may neglect to adequately keep the premises safe, which can cause serious accidents. Some of the most common causes of grocery store accidents that we receive are as follows:

  • Runaway shopping carts
  • Poorly lit parking lots or sidewalks
  • Poorly placed floormats
  • Dangerous merchandise displays
  • Spilled liquids or produce left uncleared away
  • Merchandise falling from shelves

What should I do after getting hurt in a grocery store?

If you are hurt in a grocery store, you should do everything in your power to ensure that you document the incident and receive medical treatment at once. This is why the first thing you should do is always call the police. Once you do, you should notify the store owner of your accident, take pictures of the unsafe grocery store conditions that caused you to slip or trip and fall, and ensure that you keep a copy of all medical documentation pertaining to your injuries.

Finally, you should hire an experienced personal injury lawyer who can help fight for your rightful compensation. As long as our firm can prove that you were hurt as a direct result of another party’s negligence, you should have a valid personal injury claim. Ensure you file your claim within three years of the date of your accident, in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations. If you’ve been hurt, simply pick up the phone and give us a call today.
