Some people enjoy trips to the supermarket, while others find grocery shopping burdensome. Regardless, it is important to understand the dangers a supermarket can pose. Read on to learn more about supermarket accidents in Texas.
How do Supermarket Accidents Occur?
There are various ways for a supermarket accident to occur. The majority of accidents are caused by:
- Falling product displays
- Trip and falls
- Slip and falls on spilled liquids or leaking freezers
- Broken shopping carts
- Inadequate security
Can I Recover Compensation for a Supermarket Accident?
Supermarket owners and employees must conduct routine inspections to ensure that the premises are safe for customers at all times. If these inspections are not conducted, hazards may arise that endanger shoppers. If you have been injured in a supermarket accident due to another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to recover compensation. But, in order to recover compensation, you will have to prove 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 aware. In order to provide this proof, you will need the help of an experienced personal injury attorney.
What is the Statute of Limitations?
In order to recover the compensation you deserve, you will have to file your personal injury claim on time. This means strictly adhering to the statute of limitations. In Texas, the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is generally two years from the date of the accident. Failing to file within two years will likely mean losing your opportunity to recover the compensation you need and deserve to heal. Do not let this happen. To avoid missing any important deadlines, reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
