There are few things worse than sustaining an injury due to no fault of your own. Unfortunately, accidents can happen anyplace, anywhere, and if you are someone who was recently injured in a supermarket accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you heal. Please read on and reach out to our knowledgeable Texas personal injury attorneys to learn more about supermarket accidents in Texas, what you should do after being injured in one, and how our firm can help you through every step of the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most common causes of supermarket accidents?
Supermarket accidents happen for a wide array of reasons, though they are most commonly due to negligence, either on the part of supermarket ownership or staff. Some of the most common causes of supermarket accidents include items falling from shelves, spills in aisles or restrooms causing slip and fall accidents, unsafe parking lot conditions, lack of security, poor lighting, and more. If you were injured due to another party’s negligence, there is a very good chance that you will qualify for financial compensation.
What should I do if I am injured in a supermarket?
If you are injured in a supermarket accident, you should take several steps to maximize your chances of winning a future personal injury claim. After a supermarket accident, you should do the following:
- Notify the store manager/staff of the incident. They should write up a store incident report.
- Call the police to the scene of the accident.
- Ask anyone who witnessed your accident for their contact information.
- Take pictures of the unsafe condition that caused your accident.
- Receive immediate medical treatment.
- Retain the services of a knowledgeable Texas personal injury attorney who can work to uncover all additional evidence you may need to satisfy the burden of proof.
How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in Texas?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims is, generally, two years, which means that you must sue the liable party within two years of the date of your accident. Waiting any longer than two years will most likely result in you being permanently time-barred from suing.
