There are many things that can go wrong on a mall’s property. While most hazards are mitigated by mall staff, it only takes one person failing to do their job for you to get hurt.
When you enter and leave the mall, you have to go through the parking lot. The last thing you expect is for the pavement to be uneven or broken. If it is, or if a curb is damaged, you could fall and seriously hurt yourself.
There is no way around spills happening in a mall, especially around the food court, but malls have staff who should quickly clean any spill. If they fail to do that, or they do not put up “wet floor” signs, their patrons could fall and hurt themselves. According to the CDC, the elderly are at particular risk of injury from slip and fall accidents.
All around the mall are benches, trash cans, railings, and seasonal displays. It is the job of maintenance staff to regularly inspect and maintain everything on the property. If they don’t, and customers are allowed to use broken items, they could become seriously hurt. Also, any stairs should have grip tread and railings so people do not fall.
If a mall fails to provide adequate security, they are inviting criminals to assault shoppers. There should be no reason mall patrons have to fear walking back to their vehicles, no matter what time of day it is. If someone is robbed and assaulted on mall property because of a security failure, the property owners should be held liable for damages and injuries.
