Understanding Mall Negligence: Protecting Your Rights After an Accident

Brubaker Injury Law

October 31, 2023

Shopping malls are bustling centers of commerce, but accidents can happen due to negligence on the part of mall owners or management. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the legal aspects of mall accidents and provide guidance on how to navigate the aftermath.

Slip and Fall Incidents

  • Common Occurrence: Slip and fall accidents are prevalent in malls. Wet floors, uneven surfaces, or poorly maintained walkways can lead to injuries.
  • Duty of Care: Mall owners have a duty to maintain safe premises. If negligence (such as failure to promptly clean spills or repair hazards) contributes to a slip and fall, victims may have a valid personal injury claim.

Inadequate Security Measures

  • Security Responsibility: Malls must provide adequate security to protect visitors from criminal acts such as theft, assault, or robbery.
  • Negligence: If a mall fails to implement proper security measures (such as surveillance cameras, well-trained security personnel, and adequate lighting), victims harmed by criminal acts may seek compensation.

Defective Conditions and Maintenance

  • Property Maintenance: Malls should regularly inspect and maintain their premises. Defective escalators, broken handrails, or malfunctioning elevators pose risks.
  • Legal Recourse: Victims injured due to mall defects can pursue legal action based on negligence or premises liability.

Parking Lot Accidents

  • Parking Lot Hazards: Cracked pavement, inadequate signage, and poor lighting can lead to accidents in mall parking lots.
  • Liability: Mall owners are responsible for maintaining safe parking areas. Victims injured in parking lot incidents may have grounds for a personal injury claim.

Seeking Legal Assistance

If you’ve been injured in a mall accident, consider the following steps:

  • Document the Scene: Take photos of the hazard, your injuries, and the surroundings.
  • Seek Medical Attention: Prioritize your health and seek medical care promptly.
