What to do After a New Jersey Supermarket Accident

If you are someone who has recently been injured in a supermarket accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of any damages you have incurred. Please read on to learn more about how our firm can help.

What causes supermarket accidents?

Supermarket accidents are generally a result of negligence. They are most often caused by spills, spoiled food, poorly-placed floormats, and parking lot issues, such as poor lighting or security.

How do I know if I qualify for compensation after a supermarket accident?

To qualify for compensation, you will first have to satisfy the burden of proof by proving that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. While in certain situations, this may sound fairly straightforward, the truth is, it is oftentimes quite challenging. This is why it is always best to get an experienced attorney on your side who is ready to tenaciously fight for your rights. To prove your claim, our firm will work to obtain pictures or videos of your accident, pictures of the safety hazard that caused the accident, witness testimony verifying your claim, police reports of the incident, and more.

You should also note that is is always best to seek medical assistance in the hours following your accident, as a physician will both treat your injuries and provide you with medical documentation detailing their severity and extent, which you may also use to bolster your personal injury claim.

What is the statute of limitations in New Jersey for personal injury claims?

Every state has a statute of limitations in place. Essentially, the statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to take legal action against another party. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations is two years. This means that you will have two years from the date of your accident to file a premises liability lawsuit against a negligent party. While this may sound like a lot of time, the truth is, the sooner you file a lawsuit, the better. If you wait any longer than two years, you will be denied your right to the compensation you truly need. Do not let this happen. All you have to do is reach out to our firm. We are ready to get the claims process started as soon as you are.
