What are the common causes of grocery store accidents in New York?

Grocery store accidents can occur as a result of several reasons. At Hausman & Pendzick, our attorneys have represented clients who were injured in a grocery store as a result of:

  • Loose produce
  • Spills in aisles or restrooms that have been left abandoned
  • Defective automatic entrance and exit doors
  • Items that have fallen from shelves
  • Spoiled food left for innocent customers to purchase or sample
  • Poorly placed or missing doormats
  • Debris on the floor

Can I take legal action if I was injured in a grocery store?

All property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are kept safe for those who enter them. With that being said, if you were injured in a grocery store as a result of another’s negligence, you may be able to pursue legal action on the basis of a store owner or employee’s negligence.

A grocery store owner should ensure that routine checks are being made frequently by themselves or other employees to make sure that there are no present hazards. If there are hazards, a customer can be injured as a result and the store owner can be held liable. If you are in this unfortunate situation, do not wait to reach out to our skilled New York personal injury attorneys today.

How long do I have to file a claim in New York?

The state of New York has a statute of limitations of three years for most personal injury claims. This means that if you do not file your claim within three years from the date of your grocery store accident, you will likely lose the chance to file your claim completely, and you will be unable to receive the compensation you deserve.
