Making Sense of a Supermarket Accident in Pennsylvania

Accidents can happen anywhere, even at a supermarket. If the grounds are not maintained properly by the owner or those responsible for upkeep, supermarkets can become dangerous, and shoppers can become seriously injured as a result. Injuries from a supermarket accident caused by negligence can lead the injured party to consider legal action. In this situation, it is prudent to discuss your incident with a personal injury attorney.

At Spear Greenfield, we provide free consultation. This initial appointment allows us to learn more regarding your case, and we can provide you with a better understanding of your options for recourse. The consultation is complimentary, but there is no pressure or obligation, so there is nothing to lose! Schedule your free consultation either by phone or online form by clicking below.

Considering the Legal Options Following a Supermarket Accident

If you file a personal injury claim for a supermarket accident, you must satisfy the burden of proof by showing your damages were caused by another party’s negligence. The most efficient and effective way to satisfy the burden of proof is with evidence, such as pictures of the unsafe condition that caused the accident, medical documentation of your injuries, or witness statements from other shoppers.

Without the experience and expertise of a personal injury attorney, satisfying the burden of proof can be challenging, partially due to the evidence collection process being so involved. The lawyers at Spear Greenfield have a combined 200 years of experience in handling comparable supermarket injury claims. Our law firm is dedicated to helping personal injury clients by guiding them through the legal process. Below are some of the initial steps in the process, including evaluating your case and filing a claim. Each section links to additional information to help you get started.

Poorly placed floor mats


Neglected aisle spills


Falling items from the shelves


Runaway carts


Poor parking lot condition

If you have suffered a supermarket accident that was caused by any of these occurrences or from another cause, please consult with a personal injury attorney.
