What are some of the most frequent causes of supermarket accidents?
Supermarket accidents are caused by multiple factors, though they can generally be traced back to negligence. Some of the most common causes of supermarket accidents include spilled liquids left unattended, often causing slip and fall injuries, poorly placed floor mats, unsafe supermarket parking lot or sidewalk conditions, falling items from shelves, and more.
How do I know if I qualify for compensation after a supermarket accident?
To win financial compensation, you will have to prove that you sustained injuries as a direct result of another party’s negligence; in this case, supermarket employers or staff. Unfortunately, this is not always easy, which is why you should retain the legal assistance of an experienced attorney who knows how to collect and present evidence as effectively as possible. Oftentimes, we can use otherwise hard-to-obtain evidence, such as surveillance footage of your accident, to prove your claim. That being said, you must understand that time is of the essence.
How long do I have to sue a supermarket in Texas?
After an accident, individuals in Texas are given a certain amount of time to file a lawsuit, known as the statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is two years, which means you have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against a negligent party. Though this may seem like a lot of time, it is always best to take immediate action, for if you wait past the two-year mark, you will most likely be denied your right to the financial compensation you deserve and need. Do not let this happen. We are ready to fight for your rights.
