As a result of the COVID-19 virus, supermarkets are seeing a rapid influx of people who are looking to stock up on goods. Though supermarkets are seldom unsafe, it is always best you keep your eyes open for any potential safety hazards so you may avoid a serious accident. If, however, you have been injured in a supermarket accident, you know where to turn. Please read on and reach out to our experienced Maryland slip and fall attorney to learn more about how our firm can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most frequent causes of supermarket accidents?
Supermarket accidents are generally caused by negligent store owners or employees. We understand how frustrating this can be, which is why we are dedicated to winning you the compensation you deserve. Some of the most common causes of supermarket injuries include poor security in parking lots, spills in aisles, tainted food, poorly placed floor mats, and more.
How do I sue a supermarket for an injury?
The first thing you should do is notify the store manager of your accident. From here, you should call the police right away. They will also send an ambulance that will transport you to the hospital. After being treated, the most important thing you can do is retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who knows how to satisfy the burden of proof. Simply put, to win a personal injury claim, you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Our firm can work to uncover various types of evidence on your behalf, including surveillance footage of your accident, pictures of the unsafe supermarket conditions, and more.
How long do I have to sue for an injury in the state of Maryland?
Though of course, the sooner you bring your injuries to our attention, the better, you will have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the negligent supermarket, in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations. If you wait any longer than three years to pursue legal action, you will, generally, be barred from suing. Do not let this happen. Our firm is here to fight for your right to a swift recovery.
