What is Supermarket Liability?
Supermarkets, just like all other establishments, have to keep their premises reasonably safe for consumers. When they fail to do so and someone is hurt because of it, that person may have a valid personal injury claim. Our Miami slip and fall lawyer can help accident victims recover financial compensation after sustaining serious injuries.
Common Causes of Supermarket Injuries
Supermarket injuries frequently happen when supermarket management, ownership, or staff fail to ensure that their premises are safe for shoppers. Some of the most common causes of supermarket injuries that our firm sees are as follows:
- Items falling from shelves and onto customers
- Runaway shopping carts
- Unsafe supermarket parking lots because of poor lighting, potholes, or uncleared weather-related hazards
- Spilled liquids or slippery surfaces in aisles
- Broken glass or debris in aisles
- Negligently positioned floormats
Proving Your Premises Liability Claim
To win a premises liability claim, you will have to prove that:
- The property owner/staff either knew or should have known about unsafe property conditions
- The liable party failed to clear up the unsafe property
- You were hurt as a direct result of the unsafe property conditions
- You sustained damages as a result
You, in conjunction with our firm, will have to present sufficient evidence to satisfy the burden of proof. This can include a store incident report, a copy of the police report filed at the scene of the accident, surveillance footage of the incident, pictures/medical documentation pertaining to your injuries, witness statements, and more.
Statute of Limitations for Injury Claims in Miami
If you’re injured in a supermarket, it is paramount that you alert a competent Miami supermarket liability lawyer of your injury as soon as you can. This is because there is a statute of limitations in place that states accident victims, in most cases, have four years from the date of their accident to sue the party responsible for their injuries. Waiting longer than four years will permanently time-bar anyone from suing.
