Supermarket Injuries

Trips to the supermarket are a part of everyday life. Rarely does one consider that they may be the subject of an accident while buying groceries. However, thousands of people are injured in supermarkets each year. If a supermarket’s staff exhibits negligence, shoppers can easily become injured. The seriousness of an injury in a supermarket can be dependent on a number of different factors. However, any degree of injury can result in unexpected medical expenses, lost wages, and more. If you were injured in a supermarket, it is important to consult with our supermarket injury attorneys to discuss your legal options. If you require legal guidance for an injury you sustained in a supermarket, you should contact Friedman Schuman today to schedule a consultation.

Types of supermarket accidents

Trips to the supermarkets are routine and considered fairly safe. Rarely is an individual prepared for unforeseen accidents when they are simply going about their day, buying groceries for their family. However, dangerous conditions and accidents can happen anywhere, even in a supermarket. Some of the most commonly seen supermarket accidents include slip and falls, trip and falls, and falling store displays. These accidents can be very dangerous and result in serious injuries that require medical attention.

Premises liability

Pennsylvania & New Jersey law requires that all property owners maintain safe premises. If a property owner is negligent, and that negligence causes someone an injury, they may be held liable. When an injured person decides to bring a lawsuit against a property owner, they will be subject to the burden of proving that there was negligence. This means that an injured person needs to show that the store owner did not maintain a reasonably safe property.

If you are injured in a supermarket, you should try to take pictures and videos to preserve the conditions that caused your injury. This evidence can assist tremendously in proving that there were dangerous conditions present. If the supermarket staff knew or should have reasonably known about the conditions, the supermarket may be held responsible. It is also important for the injured party to notify the store’s management that they have been injured. This way, if a personal injury lawsuit comes up in the future, there will be a record of the notification. If an injured individual fails to notify management, the store may not be aware that an accident ever occurred, which certainly does not help a case.
