What should I do if I’m injured in an SC grocery store?

If you’ve been injured in a grocery store in South Carolina, document the accident. Do this by notifying the store owner and making sure they fill out an incident report. Then, take pictures of the scene to support the incident report. Photographs from the accident are helpful for the personal injury attorney to prove negligence and liability in your case. Also, if anyone was around you when the accident occurred, ask each witness for their contact information. Most importantly, seek medical treatment immediately following a grocery store accident. It’s critical to see a doctor and get treatment for any injuries sustained from the accident.

After following these steps, you should reach out to a trusted personal injury attorney in the city or state that the accident occurred. If you or a loved one was injured in a grocery store fall, contact the attorneys at Cavanaugh & Thickens to schedule your free consultation at (803) 888-2200.
