Though supermarket accidents are not as common as other types of accidents, they do happen, especially around the hectic holiday season. If you are someone who was injured in a supermarket accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you on your way to recovery. Please read on and reach out to our experienced firm to learn more about how we can help you through the legal process going forward:
What are the most frequent contributing factors to supermarket accidents?
Supermarket accidents are caused by several different factors, though the unfortunate reality is that most of these accidents could be avoided if people simply took care and avoided negligent behavior. Some of the most frequent causes of supermarket accidents can include spills left in aisles or restrooms, falling items from shelves, spoiled food, and more.
How do I know if I can recover compensation after a supermarket accident?
When you are injured in a supermarket accident, you will most likely file what is known as a “premises liability lawsuit.” However, simply filing a lawsuit is not enough to win the compensation you need. You will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Unfortunately, this is oftentimes easier said than done. First, you will have to hire an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the personal injury claims process.
From here, your attorney will work to uncover various types of valuable evidence, including pictures of the safety hazard that caused your accident, police reports of the incident, medical documents detailing the origin and severity of your injuries, photos or videos of the accident as it happened, and more.
What is the statute of limitations for premises liability lawsuits in Connecticut?
Every state has a statute of limitations in place for personal injury claims. In Connecticut, the statute of limitations is two years. Rather simply, this means you have two years from the date of your accident to pursue legal action against a negligent party. If you wait past the two-year mark, you will be barred from suing. This is unacceptable, so if you need the compensation, it is best you act now. Our firm has been helping clients win the compensation they need for years. Do yourself a favor and put our experience to work for you.
