The supermarket is a part of almost everyone’s weekly routine. The unfortunate reality is, whether you love the supermarket or hate it, supermarkets are very often dangerous. Nobody imagines having a serious accident in the supermarket, however, it happens, and if it has happened to you, there is a very good chance you are no seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, in-home care, lost wages, and more. Read on to learn more about supermarket accidents and how you can recover the compensation you need. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What causes supermarket accidents?
Supermarket accidents generally happen when a supermarket employee, employer, or owner is negligent. Some of the most common causes of supermarket accidents can include spills, falling objects, tainted food, aisle obstructions, insufficient parking lot lighting, as well as additional parking lot hazards, such as potholes, and more.
Do I qualify for financial compensation after an accident?
To win a premises liability lawsuit, you will have to satisfy the burden of proof. Rather simply, this means that you will have to prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. Though you may think you can do so on your own, the truth is, it’s always better to hire an attorney who knows the ins and outs of the personal injury claims process.
Our attorneys will tirelessly work to uncover and present various types of valuable evidence, including pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident, police reports of the incident, medical documentation regarding the origin and extent of your injuries, security camera footage of the accident, and more.
What is the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in New Jersey?
The statute of limitations is the legally-acceptable amount of time you have to file a lawsuit against another person. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for premises liability claims is two years, which means you will have two years from the date of your accident to sue a negligent property owner. If you do not file within two years, you will be barred from suing. Thankfully, our firm is ready to get the claims process started as soon as possible so you can have the compensation you need to recover in peace.
