Shopping mall injuries are more common than people may think

Going to the mall for Miami residents is a common activity, especially during the upcoming holiday season. Many people enjoy going shopping at places that have lots of stores, so they can shop in a short amount of time. Others use mall to get some exercise and socialize with friends. Regardless of what a person does there, malls are a community gathering place. But, no one expects they will suffer an injury while at the mall.

Thousands of people across the United States are injured at shopping malls each year. Most people don't expect they will suffer from an injury when they're shopping. But, there are many injuries that can occur in these premises. Slip and fall injuries can occur if an escalator malfunctions, if the floors are wet or the carpet is torn. Objects can fall on a shopper or a display can collapse causing head or body injuries. An injury can occur from a shopping cart if it tips over. And, especially on days like "Black Friday," overcrowding injuries become a reality for some shoppers.

Those who are injured on commercial property, such as a shopping mall or other stores, may be able to pursue a personal injury claim. An attorney who handles premises liability cases can help their injured client get the answers they deserve. An attorney understands what needs to be proven in these cases. This includes proving that the owner knows about or should have known about the dangerous condition on their property, and that there was a relation between that dangerous condition and the shopper's injury.

No one expects they will be injured doing something fun. It is important that commercial property owners are held accountable, so that no one else is injured.
