shopping mall

If you get injured in a shopping mall and you believe that it was due to someone else’s negligence, you should act to hold them responsible. If you decide to file a personal injury case, a Monmouth County premises liability lawyer from our firm can help you pursue the compensation that you deserve.

What Are Some Common Shopping Mall Hazards?

There are plenty of things that can cause accidents and injuries in a shopping mall. It’s the responsibility of the property owner and others in charge of the property to address them. Otherwise, shoppers can end up getting hurt by:

  • Slippery floors
  • Poorly lit stairwells
  • Uneven or broken walkways
  • Falling merchandise
  • Cluttered aisles or walkways
  • Faulty escalators and elevators

Who Should Be Held Liable After a Shopping Mall Accident?

When someone gets hurt at a shopping mall, the first person to be held responsible is usually the property owner. However, they are not the only ones who may have caused the dangerous situation.

For example, if someone gets hurt in a specific store, that store owner or company could be responsible for their injuries. If other companies are responsible for maintaining certain parts of the mall or areas like the parking lot, they may be the ones to be held accountable for the injuries caused. No case is the same, but our law firm can help you figure out who caused you harm and who should be sued for compensation.

Can I Sue For Compensation?

Yes, you can sue for compensation if you get hurt in a mall. There are some potential exceptions, like situations where someone was committing illegal activity, but if you were just a shopper in the mall there’s no reason to suspect that you would not have a potential personal injury case on your hands. Our law firm can help you sue for compensation that would help make up for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other costs of your accident.

Just keep in mind that you do not have unlimited time to act. New Jersey gives accident victims two years to sue for damages. That can seem like a long time, but the days and months can pass by quickly as you focus on recovery and getting back to your normal life. When you hire a premises liability attorney, you can focus on your health and your family while we focus on the paperwork and getting the legal process started.
