What Should I do After a Supermarket Accident in Maryland?

Supermarket accidents, though rarer than car accidents, can be just as destructive. If you are someone who has been injured in a supermarket accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you get back on your feet again. This compensation can be used to cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages, in-home care, and more. Please read on to learn more about what our firm can do for you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most frequent causes of supermarket accidents?

The most frequent causes of supermarket accidents can include potholes in supermarket parking lots, poorly placed floor mats, spills, tainted food, inadequate security, and poor lighting. These factors, though all different, can almost always be traced back to negligence.

How do I know if I am eligible for compensation after a supermarket accident?

To recover financial compensation, you will first have to prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. However, insurance companies will very often try and deny you the compensation you truly need, so it is very important you hire an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the personal injury claims process. To prove your claim, our firm will seek to obtain various types of valuable evidence, including security camera footage of the accident, pictures of the safety hazard that caused the accident, witness testimony, police reports of the incident, and more.

Additionally, it is always the best option to seek medical attention immediately after the accident occurs, as a physician will treat your injuries and provide you with medical documentation regarding the extent of your injuries.

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

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in the state of Maryland is three years. This means that you are granted three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against a negligent party. However, it should be noted that if you take any more than three years to file a premises liability lawsuit, you will be denied your right to sue. This is unacceptable. Do not wait. All you have to do is reach out to our firm and we will begin the personal injury process as soon as we can. We are ready to help you on your road to recovery as soon as you are willing to let us.
