How Do I Sue After a Supermarket Accident in New Jersey?

Rarely do people ever suspect the supermarket as a dangerous place. However, accidents can happen anywhere, to anyone, even at a supermarket while grocery shopping. This may be the case if the property is not maintained by those whose job it is to look after these grounds. These situations can cause hazards to arise that can seriously injure shoppers as a result. Injured parties facing these situations should retain the services of an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney for guidance.

How Do I Prove Negligence?

In the state of New Jersey, all property owners are required to make sure their grounds are safe. This ensures that others cannot be harmed when they come onto it. To be sure of this, management must properly train their staff and implement the right safety procedures. Without it, grocery shoppers can be injured due to the negligence of the supermarket management and staff. These situations can result in a personal injury claim filed against the establishment. 

In filing a personal injury claim, injured parties must know that they are required to prove negligence by satisfying the burden of proof. This can be done with evidence that shows their injuries occurred as a direct result of the supermarket’s failure to provide safe grounds. Evidence can include medical documentation of the injury, pictures of the hazard, and any witnesses to the accident.

How Do I Recover Compensation?

If the injured party is successful in proving negligence, they may be eligible to recover compensation. This provides coverage for any damages incurred as a result of the accident. In many cases, people can suffer both physically and emotionally. It is because of this that they may recover economic and non-economic compensation. Economic compensation covers financial burdens due to the accident. This can include medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation, and any hired professionals for assistance. Non-economic compensation covers emotional suffering. This can include the loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and more. 

Statute of Limitations 

When pursuing legal action, it is important to not wait too long after the accident to file a claim. This is because the statute of limitations puts a deadline on how long the injured party has to file a personal injury claim. If they do not meet this deadline, the injured party may lose their right to legal action and compensation. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date of the injury.
