What Should I Do if I’m Hurt in a Supermarket?

Most of us go to the supermarket fairly regularly. Because it’s one of the more mundane activities in our lives, we seldom imagine anything out of the ordinary occurring while grocery shopping. That said, dangerous supermarket conditions can quickly lead to serious, even life-changing injuries. Please continue reading and reach out to a seasoned NYC personal injury lawyer from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about the steps you should take if you’re hurt in a supermarket and how our legal team can help you fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What steps should I take if I’m hurt in a supermarket?

If you’re hurt in a supermarket due to unsafe property conditions, such as spilled liquids, poorly-placed floormats, dangerous merchandise displays, items falling from shelves, or otherwise, you should take several steps to ensure you receive the medical treatment you need and document the incident. Those steps are as follows:

  • Seek immediate medical attention if injured and keep copies of all medical documentation pertaining to your injuries once treated.
  • Report the incident to store management and request documentation.
  • Collect witness contact information.
  • Take photographs of the accident scene and any hazards.
  • Consult a personal injury attorney for legal guidance.

How do I know if I’m entitled to compensation for an injury?

To recover compensation in any personal injury claim, you will have to gather and present sufficient evidence to satisfy the burden of proof. Simply put, this means you must prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, such as negligent supermarket management or staff. As long as you can do so, you should receive compensation for the economic and non-economic damages you’ve incurred as a result of your accident.

How long will I have to sue?

In New York State, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is, generally, three years. This means that most accident victims will only have three years from the date of their injury to file a personal injury claim. Waiting longer than three years will most likely result in you being permanently time-barred from suing. Don’t let this happen. Contact the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny today so we can get started fighting for the justice you deserve.
