What You Should Know About Supermarket Accidents in Manhattan

Supermarket accidents are both jarring and potentially devastating. Generally, people aren’t concerned about sustaining an injury while shopping for groceries, however, unfortunately, these accidents occur more often than you may think. In many cases, these accidents result in very serious injuries, and if this has happened to you, you may require financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and more. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Manhattan personal injury attorney to learn more about supermarket accidents and how our legal team can help if you’ve been wrongfully injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most frequent causes of supermarket accidents in Manhattan?

Unfortunately, there are several potential causes of supermarket accidents. In most cases, these accidents occur as a result of negligence, typically on the part of supermarket ownership or staff. Some of the most common causes of supermarket accidents are as follows:

  • Unsafe supermarket parking lots
  • Runaway carts
  • Poorly placed floor mats
  • Spilled liquids in aisles/wet floors
  • Broken glass or other dangerous merchandise in aisles
  • Merchandise falling from shelves
  • Poorly placed displays

What should I do if I’m injured in a supermarket?

If you are hurt in a supermarket, it is imperative that you do everything in your power to document the incident. This can include taking pictures of the unsafe supermarket conditions, seeking immediate medical treatment, obtaining witness statements, and notifying supermarket management of your injury. Doing so will ensure that they write up a store incident report. Our Manhattan personal injury lawyer can also work to obtain a copy of the surveillance footage of the accident as it happened. Our legal team is ready to help you receive the compensation you need.

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

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is three years. Simply put, this means that you will have three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible for your injuries. Waiting any longer than three years will most likely relinquish your right to sue. We are prepared to fight for you today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
