The mall authority is expected to maintain proper conditions for a safe environment for the safety of the customers that visit the mall. The malls have the responsibility to take care if there is some problem in the mall, they have to do regular inspections in order to check whether the conditions are right for the customers or not. The owners who fail to ensure the safety if their customers are responsible in case of an accident. He is the person who will be liable to pay the damages that have occurred due to his negligence.

The most frequent mall accidents occur due to the malfunctioning of the escalators. The gap in the escalators causes the hands or feet to stick in them resulting into many of the serious accidents.
