What Should I do After a New Jersey Supermarket Accident?

If you are someone who has been involved in a supermarket accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of any damages you have incurred. This compensation may be used to pay for medical bills, lost current or future wages, and more. Please read on and reach out to our experienced firm to learn more about how we can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have about the personal injury claims process:

What are the most common causes of supermarket accidents?

Supermarket accidents can be caused by multiple factors, though they can always be traced back to negligence. Some of the most frequent types of supermarket accidents can include spills, spoiled food, fallen objects, inadequate security or lighting, or even potholes in the parking lot.

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

Recovering compensation is not always as easy as it seems. To win compensation, you will have to prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. Since insurance companies will very often try and deny you of the compensation of which you are entitled, it is always best to hire an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the claims process. To prove your claim, our firm will work to obtain pictures or videos of the accident, witness testimony, pictures of the safety hazard that caused the accident, police reports, and more.

You should also strongly consider seeking medical attention immediately after your accident, as a physician will both treat your injuries accordingly and provide you with medical documents regarding the extent of your injuries, which you may then use to prove your personal injury claim.

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

Every state has a statute of limitations in place to designate how long individuals have to take legal action against another party. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations is two years. This means that individuals will have two years from the date of their accident to file a premises liability lawsuit against a negligent party. If you wait any longer than two years, you will most likely be denied the compensation you truly need. Do not let this happen. Our firm is ready to provide you with the legal assistance you need to attain justice.
