Supermarket Accident Attorneys in Bloomfield & Hartford, CT
Though we are mostly unaware, supermarkets are riddled with dangers that put us at risk for injuries. We depend on the care and attention store owners should provide customers who come to the store to shop. We also depend on the store to be safe and well-designed. This is not always the case and patrons are often faced with hazards that can cause injuries, including falling items, wet floors, loose produce, defective shelving, poorly designed aisles and more. If you are injured in a supermarket, you will have to prove that the store staff acted negligently and it caused your injuries. This is called the burden of proof. If you can prove that the supermarket knew or should have known about the hazard or purposefully made the hazard, you could recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, and more. If you need our quality legal services contact The Law Offices of Marc N. Needelman for a free consultation.
