Supermarket Accident & Injuries

No shopper wakes up in the morning (or any time of the day) and expects to accidentally fall or get injured at a supermarket. Nearly 5% of all individuals who fall, suffer from fractures and other the serious injuries, according to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI). Some accidents can be fatal and even result in death.

What to Do If You’re Injured at a Supermarket?

The first thing you will definitely need to do is seek medical attention immediately. Waiting too long to see a doctor can hinder your chances of suing the store for compensation.

If a store manager or owner pushes you to see their suggested doctor, deny their suggestion. In rare cases, a store owner will ask an injured shopper to see their private doctor. The purpose of this is so that the doctor could find loopholes and possibly claim that the injury is the fault of the victim or the victim had a pre-existing condition to cause them to fall (or cause their injury).

Gaining The Compensation You Deserve
