What can cause a grocery store accident?
A grocery store accident can transpire in a number of different ways. Our firm has seen many of these accidents occur as a result of:
- Poor security
- Items that have fallen from shelves
- Broken grocery carts
- Spoiled food left for innocent customers to purchase or sample
- Poorly placed or missing doormats
- Debris on the floor
- Potholes in parking lots
- Loose produce
- Spills in aisles or restrooms that have been left abandoned
- Faulty automatic entrance and exit doors
Can I pursue legal action if I was hurt in a grocery store?
It is important to understand that grocery store owners must administer routine examinations to make sure that the store is safe for customers at all times. If these inspections are not conducted, hazardous conditions can cause severe injuries to customers. If you have been injured in a supermarket accident due to another party’s negligence, you may be qualified to recover compensation. However, in order to recover compensation, you must be able to show that the supermarket knew about the hazard that caused your accident to occur and did not fix it in time, or that the owners and employees should have reasonably been informed of the hazard. You will need a skilled personal injury attorney on your side to help you prove this.
How long do I have to file a claim in Texas?
If you were injured in a grocery store accident, you may want to pursue legal action. If you do, you will need to do so quickly. The state of Texas has a statute of limitations of two years for most personal injury claims. This suggests that if you do not file your claim within two years from the date of your grocery store accident, you may lose the opportunity to file your claim and you will be unable to receive the compensation you need.
Do not wait to reach out to our skilled Texas personal injury attorneys. Your claim is time-sensitive and our legal team will make sure that you are filing promptly.
