One of the last places you’d expect to sustain injuries is a supermarket. While fortunately, most people go their entire lives without having such a thing happen, the truth is, supermarket accidents can happen. If you have been injured in a supermarket accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you get back on your feet again. Here are some of the questions you may have about the personal injury claims process:
What most commonly causes supermarket accidents?
Supermarkets consist of a variety of items and architecture. Therefore, any number of accidents can take place. Some of the most common causes of supermarket accidents can include unattended spillage, spoiled food, fallen items, aisle obstructions, insufficient lighting, potholes in the parking lot, and more.
How can an attorney help me recover compensation?
To win financial compensation, you will have to first prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. Attorneys are trained to collect and present information as effectively as possible, so it is always best to hire an experienced attorney when you plan on filing a personal injury lawsuit. Your attorney will seek to collect supermarket security footage of the incident, pictures of the hazardous safety conditions, witness testimony, police reports, and more.
The most important thing that you can do is seek medical attention in the hours following your accident. Not only a physician treat your injuries as necessary, but he or she will also provide you with medical documentation that you can use to prove your personal injury claim.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland?
When you are injured, you have a certain amount of time from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit against a negligent party. For premises liability lawsuits in Maryland, you will have three years to file a claim. If you do not take legal action within three years of your accident, you will be denied your right to compensation. Though three years may sound like all the time in the world, the truth is, the sooner you file your personal injury claim, the better. Fortunately, we are ready to begin the claims process as soon as you are. All you have to do is speak our firm.
