Though supermarkets are among the most mundane destinations in our daily lives, they are also not an uncommon site of injuries. If you are someone who has been injured in a supermarket accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation. Please read on to learn more about what our firm can do for you.
What can cause a supermarket accident?
Some several different factors and actions can cause supermarket accidents, however, they are most commonly caused as a result of one party’s negligent. Some of the most common contributors to supermarket accidents can include poorly place floormats, inadequate lighting, slippery floors from spills left unattended, falling items from shelves, defective shopping carts, and more.
How do I recover financial compensation after being injured in a supermarket accident?
To sue a supermarket, you will first have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence in what is known as a premises liability lawsuit. To prove your personal injury claim, our firm will work to recover various types of valuable evidence, including pictures or videos of the accident as it happened, pictures of the safety hazard that caused your accident, witness testimony, police reports or store reports of the incident, and more. You should also always seek medical assistance after your accident. A physician will asses your injuries and document them, which you may also use to bolster your claim.
What is the statute of limitations for Florida personal injury claims?
The phrase, “statute of limitations” relates to the amount of time individuals have to take legal action against another party. Since the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Florida is four years, you will have four years from the date of your accident to sue a negligent supermarket. We are aware that four years sounds like you have all the time in the world, however, the truth is, the sooner you get the claims process started, the better. What’s more, if you wait any longer than the four-year time limit, you will be denied your right to compensation, no matter how bad you truly need it. That is why you cannot afford to wait any longer. Our firm is here to help.
