Supermarket Accident Attorney in Middlesex County, NJ

Supermarket Accidents

Representing New Jersey supermarket accident victims

When we walk through the aisles of our supermarket, we are not aware of the dangers that lurk. We believe that the supermarket staff is actively protecting us as we do our errands. We hope that the staff is frequently monitoring the store for hazards that can cause its consumers harm. Unfortunately, not all supermarket staff take the necessary care when doing their jobs and it may lead to a serious injury of a customer. You could be injured by a wide variety of hazards, including outdoor elements that are brought into the store, spills, loose produce, falling items, and unattended products on the floor. Some of the many injuries you could endure include broken bones, back injuries, concussion, and much more. Supermarkets should be reasonably free of dangers. When the standard of care is not met and you are injured because of the negligence of the supermarket, you need to consider your legal options. If you need quality legal support from an experienced attorney, contact The Law Office of Andrew S. Maze, Esq. in Woodbridge, NJ.

What to do after a supermarket accident

After you have been seriously injured in a supermarket accident, it is critical that you seek medical attention. Even if you don’t think you were hurt badly enough, your injuries may stay dormant before showing signs. Aside from that, a medic will document your injury and the time and place it occurred. You should consider collecting evidence for yourself. In New Jersey, the burden of proof is on the victim of the accident so you, as the injured party, will have to demonstrate that you’re serious injuries were caused by the supermarket staff’s negligence in order to construct a valid personal injury case. Once you clear the scene, the supermarket staff will quickly address the situation to avoid further injuries, erasing any evidence for the most part. Try and take pictures of the hazard that caused your injury. Talk to other patrons that saw your accident. It is important to act quickly and if you can’t, contact our firm to act on your behalf. In addition to investigating the scene, our firm can talk to the supermarket staff about obtaining the surveillance tapes of the store that may show the whole incident happen.
