The term “shopping related injury” covers a very wide range of accidents. For example, slip and falls can result from a wet floor, a torn carpet, escalator malfunctions, or poor lighting. Other types of shopping related injuries include shopping cart related injuries, head and body injuries from falling objects such as retail displays, overcrowding injuries, or parking lot injuries due to lack of maintenance to wear and tear on concrete.
Shopping mall related injuries claims can be hard to pinpoint as are any claims having to do with a public place, due to the fact that there may be multiple outside parties involved or at fault. However, state negligence laws and premises liability laws state that store owners must maintain a safe environment for shoppers by making sure that there are no hidden dangers or hazardous conditions that could cause injury of any kind. For example, when there is a spill, the store must clean it up immediately, anything that is broken such as a step or railing must have a caution sign on it and must be taken care of right away.
