Erewhon Slip and Fall Information
You could have slipped and fallen at an Erewhon for a number of reasons. The floors may have been slick from spilled beverages and food, or they could have had a leak from the coolers. An employee may not have placed any wet floor signs, or they may not have fixed a crack in the floor. Discarded merchandise, shopping carts, baskets, and more could also have caused you to trip.
Some of the injuries we have seen from slip and fall accidents in supermarkets include broken bones, sprains, strains, dislocations, concussions, closed head injuries, knee and hip damages, paralysis, nerve damage, muscle damage, and more. Some individuals have suffered lasting complications that resulted in their untimely deaths in the months following the incidents, as well.
Premises Liability Details
A premises liability lawsuit can be filed if you can show that the property manager made an error in some way. This can be proven in one of three manners. They are as follows:
The manager knew about the hazard in the supermarket but either did not fix it or did not provide any warnings to customers about how to avoid it
The manager caused the hazard himself
The manager was not aware of the hazard, but had he conducted investigations and been more reasonable, he would have known
The majority of premises liability claims fall under the third option, especially those that are filed against locations that have numerous employees and too little oversight.
There are three types of visitors to private properties: invitees, licensees, and trespassers. Trespassers have no legal right to be on the property, while licensees are social guests. Invitees are afforded the highest duty of care, as they are present on the property for a mutual benefit – they are generally categorized as customers. As an invitee at the supermarket, you should be protected at all costs and not be in any danger.
How to File a Claim against Erewhon for a Slip and Fall
In order to file a claim against Erewhon, you must have suffered some kind of physical injuries. Therefore, you will need medical proof that you were hurt. It is important that you go to the doctor immediately after suffering any injuries or getting in the incident, for a number of reasons. You may have hidden damages that the doctor could uncover; your health may worsen the longer you wait to get treatment; and the more likely it is that the insurance agent will doubt the truth of your claim if there is a large gap. He will believe that you were hurt in another incident and you’re merely using Erewhon as an outlet, or that you were not that badly hurt at all. Your proof from the hospital should include test results, X-Rays, MRIs, doctor’s statements, receipts, insurance statements, and more.
You will need photos of the damages you suffered. It will come in handy to show how bad the injuries were before any treatments or before you began to recover. You can also take photos of the scene of the incident inside the Erewhon. It will benefit your claim to get video footage or security footage from the supermarket, but it may be difficult.
There could have been other shoppers nearby who saw the incident happen, or employees at the store who witnessed the fall and aftermath. You can add their statements and testimonies to your claim to provide additional perspectives.
You will need to file an incident report with the supermarket. You can ask the manager for the Erewhon insurance information and Erewhon contact information so your claim will be submitted to the right office and representatives. You should also not take any compensation or offers from the manager or company, as they can claim that you were properly compensated.
Finally, you will have a better chance of success if you work with an Erewhon slip and fall lawyer. You might not know much about premises liability law, have any experience in the legal field, or even be healthy enough to file a claim. We can take on the legwork of the case and ensure that you are given the best treatment by doctors. We will negotiate with the insurance company and see to it that you are fairly paid for your losses.

Statute of Limitations for Slip and Fall Lawsuits
California has a statute of limitations of 2 years from the date of the injury to file an accident claim or injury claim. You should file your lawsuit as soon as possible after the incident so that your evidence will not be lost over time. The statute of limitations is in place so that both sides have ample time to build their cases and so that there is no favoritism or unfairness at play for one side.
The statute of limitations can potentially be extended in some scenarios. They are listed below:
Minors cannot legally sue, so they can wait until they turn 18 years old for the statute of limitations to start counting down
Victims left mentally or physically incapacitated after the incident can wait until they return to physical awareness or health before they follow the statute of limitations
Defendants must be in the state of California, and if they have left, the statute of limitations will not count down until they return
We recommend speaking with an attorney to figure out how much time remains on your case. Many victims do not act quickly enough, and the statute of limitations ends up expiring. We will have everything submitted to the insurance agency on time and there will be no chance of any deadlines getting missed. We are punctual and always certain of the exact time remaining on your case.
Average Settlement for Injury in Erewhon
The average settlement for accident in Erewhon is dependent on the extent of the injuries you suffered, among other factors. The insurance agent handling your case will look at how the injuries impacted your life and career, whether or not you were responsible for the incident, and more. Most slip and fall lawsuits against Erewhon end up being settled for more than $25,000, but some result in million-dollar settlements and others result in next to nothing. It is important that you work with a skilled slip and fall lawyer so that you have the best chance of the maximum compensation. Our attorneys will work around the clock to secure you the following damages:
Medical bills from the past and future for ambulatory transportation, surgery, hospitalization, prescription drugs and medication, physical therapy, and more
Lost wages if you could not work, such as commissions, benefits, tips, bonuses, and more
Property damage for any personal belongings that must be fixed or replaced
Pain and suffering damages for mental trauma, emotional anxiety, fear, PTSD, and more
Wrongful death damages for pre-death medical bills and pain and suffering, funeral and burial fees, loss of relations, loss of inheritance and savings, and more, if a family member or loved one died in the incident
Too often, victims end up with no ability to cover these debts and expenses because they agree to small settlements. We will not result until we have secured you the fairest deal possible from the supermarket’s insurance agency.
