Food shopping is one of the most mundane aspects of our lives, and if you’re like most people, you frequent the supermarket at least once a week. While generally, these trips to the grocery store prove relatively uneventful, there are certain instances where safety hazards are present and people are injured as a result. If you are someone who has been injured in a supermarket accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you on your road to recovery. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the claims process going forward:
What causes supermarket accidents?
Supermarkets consist of thousands of items and variables that, if improperly managed or maintained, may cause a serious accident. Some of the most frequent contributors to supermarket accidents include poorly positioned floor mats, falling items from shelves, spills left unattended in aisles or restrooms, spoiled food, potholes or inadequate lighting in parking lots, and more.
How do I recover compensation after a supermarket accident?
Though winning personal injury claims may seem rather straightforward, the truth is, the process is oftentimes more complicated than you think. Unfortunately, justice for you simply hurts insurance companies’ bottom line, which is why they will very often do anything they can to deny you the compensation you need. That is why you need to retain the services of an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the claims process.
Your attorney will work to obtain various types of valuable evidence, including pictures of the safety hazard that caused your accident, witness statements confirming your claim, videos of the accident, medical documents detailing the origin and extent of your injuries, and more.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida?
Every state has a statute of limitations when it comes to personal injury claims. In Florida, the statute of limitations is four years, which means you have four years from the date of the accident to file a premises liability lawsuit against a negligent property owner. If you fail to file within the legally acceptable timeframe, you will most likely be denied the compensation you deserve, no matter how bad you truly need it. Do not let this happen. Our firm will initiate the claims process and fight from beginning to end for the compensation you need to get back on your feet.
