These slip and fall cases often result in disputes regarding which persons are responsible for maintaining the shopping mall. The property owner may have contracted with another person that manages the shopping mall’s operations. Also, the owner and shopping mall manager may have contracted with additional persons for overall maintenance of the shopping mall. Fault also depends on the location of your fall within the shopping mall. For example, if you fell in a retail store, the store will also be at-fault for your injuries. An experienced slip and fall attorney will conduct a thorough investigation, including obtaining all contracts relating to the shopping mall, to determine all at-fault persons.
Slip and falls at shopping malls often result in significant injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, bone fractures, and spinal cord injuries. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may require extensive and expensive medical treatment, and miss time from work. However, the law compensates victims of negligence for these items. As such, it is important that you retain an experienced slip and fall attorney, who will thoroughly investigate your fall so that you receive all the money you deserve for your injuries.
Please preserve all evidence relating to your fall, including receipts, bills, and medical records. Please also note the identities of your treating healthcare providers. In order to prove the opposing party was at-fault, it is better to have more rather than less evidence.
