“Come on everyone, we’re going to the mall.”
Okay, we know that going to the mall with the whole family can be chaotic. You don’t have to bring them all every time. Sometimes you just want to go by yourself to get some quick shopping done. When you go, you expect the whole property to be safe. Unfortunately, sometimes accidents happen.
Do you know what to do if you get injured at the mall because of someone else’s negligence?
We do. At the Dante Law Firm, we are standing by to help if you need a Dadeland Mall accident lawyer. Our premises liability attorneys are ready to fight to get you fair compensation for your injuries.
Mall property owners and managers should have customer safety as their number one goal. If they fail to provide that, they are negligent in their duties. It starts with providing adequate security both inside and outside the mall. With such a large property and so many goods being purchased, people with criminal intent could prey on mall patrons.
They won’t if there are plenty of security guards and a well-lit parking lot. If anyone gets assaulted or robbed on mall property because there was no security around, the mall owners should be held liable.
Inside the mall, employees should always be on the lookout for hazards. If there are spills, they should be cleaned immediately to prevent patrons from slip and fall accidents that could cause them harm. Also, any broken benches, trash cans, or railings should be fixed so people do not get hurt.
All mall displays should be well built and stable so they do not fall on mall patrons and any construction projects should be cordoned off so nobody can get close.
We’ve all seen the horrible videos of people getting stuck on mall escalators. If they are malfunctioning, they should be taken out of service. Both escalators and elevators should be inspected and maintained regularly. They have plenty of moving parts that could cause patrons, especially children, harm if they break.
Mall staff should ensure that each store’s displays of merchandise are stable and will not fall. While each store is ultimately responsible for their own displays, the mall property owners should be the guiding hand when it comes to safety.
We know that premises liability cases can get confusing, especially when it comes to shopping malls. There will be a question as to who is ultimately responsible for which part of the mall – the mall owner or the individuals stores.
At the Dante Law Firm, we don’t think it’s fair that someone else’s mistake should jeopardize your financial livelihood. If you are hurt at the mall, your medical bills may pile up quickly. If you have to miss work, the lost income will impact your ability to support your family. If you need a Dadeland Mall accident lawyer, we want to help you get back on your feet.
