Dolphin Mall Stores

The Dolphin Mall is located at the western edge of Miami-Dade. It is surrounded by Doral, Tamiami, University Park, Fontainebleau and Flagami. It is located in close proximity to Florida International University (FIU) as well. The mall is located at 11401 NW 12 Street near the Florida Turnpike and the Dolphin Expressway (State Road 836).

The Dolphin Mall is separated into three districts: Moda (Fashion); Rambles (Boulevard); and Playa (Beach). It is widely believed that the Dolphin Mall was opened in response to the popularity of the Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise Florida. The thought was to intercept the traffic from Miami International Airport (MIA) that landed from South America and Europe and would travel to Sawgrass Mills. By placing the Dolphin Mall at the end of the Dolphin Expressway at the intersection with northbound Florida Turnpike and using the same upscale outlet mall design, the Dolphin Mall was successful in developing a vibrant shopping mall.

The stores, shops and dining options at the Dolphin Mall include:

  • More than 240 specialty shops including DKNY, Bose, True Religion Brand Jeans, Polo Ralph Lauren Flagship Factory Store, BOSS Hugo Boss, Banana Republic, Victoria’s Secret, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger Company Store, Nautica, Ann Taylor Factory Store, Brooks Brothers Factory Store, Cole Haan, Calvin Klein Factory Outlet, Nike Factory Store, Movado, and A|X Armani Exchange.

Dolphin Mall Slip and Fall Lawyers in Miami

If you are injured at the Dolphin Mall do you know what to do after a slip and fall? Our Dolphin Mall Slip and Fall Attorneys in Miami recommend the following:

  1. Get the contact information for any possible witnesses and employees right awy. This could be incredibly important in proving your case.

  2. Don’t forget any kind of statement made by an employee, manager, security guard or maintenance person. In fact, write it down as soon as you can so you can share it with your Dolphin Mall Premises Liability Lawyer in Miami.

  3. You MUST report your slip and fall to the store manager or employee. If you don’t they could ultimately deny you even fell and say you are making a fraudulent claim.

  4. See if you can figure out what you tripped or slipped on. That can help in proving causation and notice in your case.

  5. Look and see if you can figure out what the source of the substance that you slipped on. It could be a leak from a refrigerator or freezer. It might be wet from mopping or cleaning. It might be gel, lotion or a food substance. Make your notes. The information could be important. Better to be safe than sorry.

  6. Save your shoes and clothes. Your Dolphin Mall Personal Injury Attorney may need them for testing later on to figure out the substance that caused you to slip and fall.

  7. Take photos and videos with your phone. Try to get clear pictures of the substance that made you slipped and fall.

  8. Ask the manager for a copy of any incident reports concerning your slip and fall.

  9. Get checked out by a doctor. Seek medical help at an urgent care or emergency room. Our Dolphin Mall Slip and Fall lawyer in Miami have seen slip and fall injuries that clients did not immediately recognize but later turned out to be very serious. Again, better to be safe now then sorry later.

  10. Call a Dolphin Mall Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer in Miami and get legal advice right away. Many times there is a problem or defect on the property itself. Stairs may not be constructed in compliance with the Florida Building Code. There can be a structural defect with the property that caused you to slip, trip and fall. That’s why it is important to get a Dolphin Mall Trip and Fall Attorney in Miami immediately so the investigator can get to the scene and take measurements, video and/or photographs to establish the defective condition of the property before the Dolphin Mall tries to correct it. To be perfectly clear, the preservation of slip and fall evidence is extremely important.

Like most malls, the Dolphin Mall in Miami and many of its stores, shops, food courts and dining facilities will have closed circuit video surveillance. But if the Dolphin Mall, restaurant or any retail store are not placed on notice immediately, they generally have no legal obligation to keep the video tapes of your slip and fall. When an injured person retains our Dolphin Mall Slip and Fall lawyers we immediately place the mall owner and any potential store operator on notice to preserve and otherwise save the video tapes as evidence.
