What’s your claim if you’ve been injured at a shopping mall?

Accidents can happen anywhere, but if you are hurt on privately owned property, you may be entitled to compensation for injuries and damages.

This blog will provide a brief introduction to the injuries that can be caused in a shopping mall, and under what circumstances you might be entitled to a claim.

Injuries in the mall

Many injuries can occur in a mall, especially if the property owners have not taken enough measures to ensure the safety of their guests. For example, you may be injured in a slip-and-fall incident because of wet floors that have not been taken care of or torn carpets that have not been fixed. In busy stores or during shopping sales such as Black Friday, you may suffer serious injuries due to overcrowding or trampling. In many cases, injuries such as these could have been avoided by careful management of the property. Failing to take proper care in this way is called negligence.

How do you know if you have a claim?

The law states that for a property owner to be considered negligent, it must be proven that the person responsible for the property knew or should have known about the defect that caused the injury. It must also be shown that there was inadequate maintenance, and if the property had been adequately maintained, then the injury would not have happened at all.

Shopping mall injuries are relatively common, and by filing a claim, you may be taking action that prevents such accidents from happening in the future.
