Common Shopping Centre Accidents

Each year there are numerous cases where people are injured in shopping centres and shopping malls. There are a wide range of injuries which can occur as a result of the negligence of the management and employers of the shopping centre. These might be incidents ranging from slips, trips or falls that can cause injuries to a person which was not caused because of their own fault.

There are some common shopping centre accidents that can include the slip accident in the shopping centre at the place where the floor was left wet after being mopped and cleaned. The wet surfaces can get the people in troubles that are passing by. It is the duty of the staff members of the shopping centre to ensure that there are warning and caution signs so that the shopper scan walk carefully that can avoid accidents and injuries. Other reasons for the accidents include the faulty flooring or trips and falls from the sidewalks that are unlevelled or broken. The person might fall from the broken sidewalk area that can cause injuries that can result in broken bones or in some cases there are also spinal cord injuries.

Problems with the escalators and elevators are also one of the causes of common shopping centre accidents while the people have come in the shopping centres to enjoy shopping. It is the responsibility of the management to take care that the escalators are working properly and there is no accidents caused.

If you or any relative of yours has suffered injuries in the accidents that are caused in the shopping centres, you are entitled to make an accident compensation claim. This compensatory claim is a result of the injuries that are faced by you which is a result of the negligence of the maintenance staff or the employers of the shopping centres. There are personal injury solicitors that are there to help the injured people and work on their behalf to get them the compensated claim amount. There are well qualified and learned solicitors that help the injured in the process of filing a claim to getting the compensatory amount. Most of these attorneys work on a no win no fee basis which means that you can get the maximum compensation for the injuries. This compensatory amount will be for the medical expenses that you had to bear as a result of the injuries that were caused to you. You must make sure that you file the claim within three years of the accident. Also select a solicitor for you which you find is the best and has an expert knowledge of dealing with the claims. This can increase your chances of getting the claim being compensated.

Trip on highway
Mrs J tripped on a pothole whilst crossing a service road running parallel to a main road, fracturing her shoulder, wrist and ankle. The Council initially denied full liability for her accident alleging Mrs J was partly to blame for not avoiding the pothole. Cooks arranged a Conference with a barrister and on his advice rejected this. After intense negotiations Mrs J was awarded £17,000.00 she said:
"I had help from the start regarding my claim and found the advice very reassuring. I have never had to make a claim before so was apprehensive but you did a lot to alleviate my worries. Thanks again for all your help and support."
