Supermarket Accidents

Dutchess County Supermarket Accident Law Firm

Protecting NY victims of supermarket accidents

Most people frequent supermarkets for their everyday goods. We hope that the staff regularly monitor the grounds and aisles of the grocery store to properly protect patrons. We also depend on stores to be well-designed for our safety. This is not always the case and people are hurt by the negligence of store owners and their staff. Too many people encounter dangerous conditions, including tripping hazards, wet floors, falling merchandise, poorly designed aisles and display cases, and other problems with walking surfaces inside and out of the store. If you are injured in or around a supermarket or retail store, you need to consider your legal options. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries if you can prove that the accident was caused by negligence. If you need effective legal representation, contact The Law Office of Raji S. Zeidan, PC for a consultation.

Proving negligence

New York law establishes a burden of proof that lies on the plaintiff. If you are injured in a supermarket accident, you need to prove that your injuries could have been avoided if the staff or owner of the store took the proper precautions to protect you. Furthermore, you will have to prove that the owner knew or should have reasonably known about the hazard that injured you. This is a difficult task that needs the proper evidence and a thorough investigation.

After a store accident

It is important to have evidence to prove your case. Report your accident to the store staff and get medical attention. If you can, take pictures of the danger because it will most likely disappear soon after you leave to protect other consumers. Talk to any witnesses that may have seen the incident. Check to see if any store cameras may have recorded the accident. These are just some of the steps you can take to collect evidence. If your injuries stop you from acting for yourself, contact our firm to come to the scene on your behalf.
