Can I pursue legal action if I was injured in a grocery store?

It is important to understand that grocery store owners and employees are responsible for making sure that their property is safe for their customers. This means that store owners and employees should make regular checks on the premises to make sure that there are no hazards. If periodic investigations are not performed, serious injury can result. If this occurs, a property owner can be held liable for negligence.

How long do I have to file a grocery store accident claim in New Jersey?
