Supermarket accidents, though comparatively rare and almost always unexpected, can have disastrous results. If you are someone who has been involved in a supermarket accident, you are most likely severely injured as a result. Those injured very often seek financial compensation to help them cover the cost of their medical bills, in-home care, lost current and future wages, and more. Please read on and reach out to our experienced firm to learn more about what we can do for you. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the legal process going forward:

What causes supermarket accidents?

Though several things can cause a supermarket accident, you can almost always trace these accidents back to some form of negligence. Spills left unattended, potholes in supermarket parking lots, insufficiently lighted parking lots, poor security, and more all contribute to supermarket accidents.

How do I recover compensation after a supermarket accident?

To recover compensation, you will have to prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. However, this is not always easy, so you must ensure that you have an experienced attorney at your side. An attorney will work to recover various types of information, including security camera footage of the accident, pictures of the safety hazard that caused the accident, police reports documenting facts of the incident, witness testimony, and more.

Additionally, it is crucial that you seek medical assistance in the hours following your accident. A medical professional treat your injuries and provide you with medical documentation detailing their extent and severity. You may then use these documents to help prove your personal injury claim.

What is the statute of limitations in Maryland for personal injury claims?

Every state has a statute of limitations. Essentially, the statute of limitations is the amount of time you will have to take legal action against another party. Since the statute of limitations is three years in the state of Maryland, you will have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against a negligent party. If you wait any longer than three years, you will be denied your right to compensation. Do not let this happen. Our firm is ready to begin the claims process as soon as possible.
