Our Aventura Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers in Miami regularly help personal injury victims injured in Miami shopping malls. In our experience, the most common mall accidents include:
Parking lot collisions happen frequently and are a common cause of shopper’s injuries. Pedestrian accidents can occur when there is poor lighting. The failure to maintain the parking lots can cause many car accidents. If the arrows and stop signs posted and painted on the ground are not properly maintained, car crashes will happen. Some drivers are careless and occasionally rude. Our Aventura Car Accident Attorneys can help you identify potential defendants and aggressively serve your best interests.
Drunk Drivers. Since Aventura Mall has restaurants that serve alcohol, the possibility of drunk driving accidents in the parking lots is raised exponentially.
Shopping carts that are poorly maintained can cause injuries. Broken edges that can lacerate shoppers' hands and fingers. Shopping cart wheels fall off. Folding parts that are broken can injure a child or the parent.
Premises Liability Casesinclude merchandise falling on customers. It may include debris and garbage from shelves and products on shelves. Structural failures can also cause personal injuries including tiles in the ceiling, floor or stairs that are worn out or broken.
Slip and falls and trip and falls are by far the most common type of Miami shopping mall injury including.
- Parking lots and sidewalks that are broken or uneven
- Water from leaking refrigeration units, pipes or even ice displays
- Common areas where the floors are improperly polished or waxed without appropriate warnings of the hidden dangers
- Electrical cords or extensions that are unsecured
- Spilled food and drinks in the food courts
- Improperly placed or maintained floor wiper mats that curl up or flap over and fail to work as intended
- Bathroom floors that are wet from leaks or broken plumbing or the simple failure of maintenance.
Escalator and elevator injuries can also occur. Elevators can fall or fail to line up at the designated floors causing a trip and fall. Escalators with improperly aligned rails, steps that have not been properly synced, sudden stops or jerking movement, improperly maintained demarcation points at the end of the escalator and broken steps.
Mob Behavior and trampling may seem to be rare but think about “Black Friday” sales. Grand openings and celebrity appearances can also cause small kids and the elderly to be trampled and knocked over. If the Aventura Mall anticipates events that will produce mobs, then it is the management’s job and duty to provide a safe environment for all of its visitors. If they don’t then they are responsible for your harms and losses.
Criminal assaults, shootings and robberies happen regularly in shopping mall bathrooms and parking lots. Criminals stalk shoppers by following them to their cars and robbing them. Aventura Mall has a duty to provide adequate security in the form of guards, patrols and monitored surveillance cameras. These measures act as a deterrence to the criminal element. The mall and local police keep accurate statistics of criminal acts. If there is an increase in muggings and robberies, then it is up to the Aventura Mall management to increase the security. If they don’t then our Aventura Mall Serious Injury Lawyers in Miami will seek to hold the management accountable.
