Miami Trader Joe’s Accident Lawyer

Representing the Rights of Accident Victims Who Were Injured While Shopping at Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe’s - like other grocery stores - is the site of many slip and fall accidents. When a grocery shopper is injured in a slip and fall accident, the store may be legally responsible for compensating his or her injuries. Contact the professional legal team at Gerson & Schwartz after any slip and fall accident to ensure that your legal rights are protected. For decades, Miami injury victims have depended upon our personal injury lawyers to secure fair legal compensation. Schedule a consultation today to learn how we can help you and your family during this difficult time.

How Do I Get Compensation for a Slip and Fall Accident?

In order to be compensated for a slip and fall accident, the victim must prove that someone was legally responsible (“liable”) for causing his or her injuries. Generally, this will be accomplished through “premises liability”. Premises liability imposes a legal duty on homeowners and shopkeepers to maintain their premises in safe condition. If they do not, the owner can be liable for any damages sustained by the victim, such as medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, and lost wages. In general, store managers and other commercial property owners have a higher obligation for maintaining their premises than homeowners do. This is because they are inviting the public onto their premises for commercial purposes. Nonetheless, if you are injured in a slip and fall accident at a private home, the homeowner can be liable for your damages in certain circumstances.

Do I Have to file a lawsuit?

Not every personal injury case requires a lawsuit to be filed. If you file a claim with the liable party’s insurance company and they make a fair settlement offer, it is possible to resolve the case without court intervention. However: if you do need to file a lawsuit, be mindful of the applicable statute of limitations. In Florida, a negligence action must be filed within four years of the date of injury. Medical malpractice and wrongful death suits must be brought within two years. Special rules apply to accidents which occurred on a cruise ship. Because the statute of limitation begins to run as soon as the accident occurs, it is important to consult an attorney as soon as possible after the accident. This will allow ample time for handling and negotiating your claim, and later filing a lawsuit if necessary.

How Much is my Trader Joe’s Accident Claim Worth?

Many people who have been hurt while shopping at Trader Joe’s are curious to know how much they can expect to recover from the retailer. Unfortunately, there is no way to determine how much a particular accident case will be worth without conducting a thorough analysis of all of the relevant factors. Some of the issues that will determine how much compensation you will receive include the following:

  • The overall strength of your case
  • The severity of your injuries and whether they will require ongoing treatment
  • Whether you were partially at fault for your accident
  • The amount of money you make
  • Your age

As an accident victim, it is critical to keep in mind that the insurance company is under no obligation to make you a settlement offer that adequately compensates you for your injuries, so you should always have an attorney review your case before accepting a settlement.

Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
