Injured In a Mall

Nobody ever gives it a thought that when they visit the shopping mall, either themselves or their children could have accidents that could take them some time to recover from. A mall is a crowded place with hundreds of people coming to the mall daily. They find themselves safe as they enter the shopping malls as it is the responsibility of the mall to provide a safe and secure environment for its customers. This safety might range from having escalators checked regularly are running properly and the floors are not wet along with taking care of all the things that can cause an accident that might leave the person injured and lead to possible legal action against the Mall.

These unsafe public areas have increased chances of having accidents that can cause injuries and also sometimes wrongful deaths. Almost all of the injuries in the mall are caused which is a result of the wet floor that is unmarked. These wet areas are risky areas that cause accidents for the people who are just walking. These accidents can lead to injuries such as the person might get a fracture or sometime ever injuries that might be the spine injuries that can take time to recover. There are other reasons also for the person being injured in a mall. The walking areas are a danger even if the floors are not slippery. These walkways are sometimes broken or are not levelled that can result in the falls and trips. These can also have broken bones or spinal cord injuries.

The injuries and accidents that are preventable are marked as the fault of the mall owners. No one gets a slip or fall intentionally, it is caused because of the negligence of the safety measures that should be taken by the security and the owner.

If you have been injured in a mall and faced injuries that were caused because of the negligence of the staff, you are eligible for filing a claim against that shopping mall within three years when the accident took place. These compensatory claims are for those who have faced an accident that was a result of slips, falls and trips and was not your fault but had been a result of the employer’s negligence. There are personal injury solicitors who are experienced in the field of getting the injured their compensatory claim. You may claim for the medical expenses and the compensation for the days that you had to miss at your work because of the injury. There are also some solicitors and attorneys that work on no win no fee basis that generally means that of the solicitors are unable to get you the compensated claim they won’t charge any money from you.

Slip in Public House
Mrs C whilst walking towards the bar area slipped on the wet floor of a public house whilst walking towards the bar area. She fell awkwardly causing a complex fracture of her right wrist. The insurers denied liability alleging the floor was dry and that Mrs C was drunk and jumping on the dancefloor. Cooks obtained evidence refuting this and issued the claim at Court. Settlement was reached just prior to the trial when Mrs C was awarded £20,000.00 she said:
"I would just like to say thanks to the staff who have been first class explaining things to me all the way and keeping me informed."
