Shopping centers are a staple in most Florida cities. Many shopping centers have anchor stores, like a supermarket or well-known retail store, along with other smaller establishments. You may find restaurants or bars, medical offices, hair and nail salons, or other retail shops in the center. While some centers are designed for shopping, other locations feature benches, tables, fountains, and places for people to hang out.

Shopping centers can be a convenient way to get all your errands done. But a center that isn’t well-maintained or has a lot of traffic and a tight parking lot can pose hazards to customers. You could be hurt if you fall in the parking lot, trip on broken or uneven walkways, or become a victim of criminal activity due to the lack of lighting or security at night.

Common Shopping Center Accidents in Florida

Despite their convenience, shopping centers pose unique risks to customers. Some of the most common ways people get hurt in a Florida shopping center include:

  • Trip and fall on sidewalks that are broken or uneven.
  • Slips and falls on walking surfaces slick from rain or leaking water.
  • Parking lots with overgrown bushes or trees block a driver’s view of pedestrians walking through or cars traveling in the lot.
  • Customers could trip and fall on potholes, broken sidewalks, or hidden curbs in the parking lot.
  • Dim or broken lights around the mall walkways and parking lot at night
  • Poorly designed parking lots that have narrow spaces and blind spots could make it difficult for drivers to see when backing out.
  • Leaves or debris left on walkways can become slick if wet.
  • Parking lot paint used to mark loading zones, crosswalks, and parking spaces can become slippery if it does not contain the appropriate non-slip materials.
  • Lack of lighting or security at night could lead to criminal activity against customers in the center.
  • Slips or trips and falls when walking in and out of stores with different flooring types.
  • Drivers talking or texting on the phone could hit pedestrians or another vehicle if they aren’t paying attention.
  • A speeding car could hit pedestrians walking to and from the store.
Law Firm for Florida Shopping Center Accidents

Depending on the circumstances around the accident, a Florida shopping center accident case can be complex. The property owner may hire a management company to oversee the day-to-day operations. Different entities may own and operate retail stores within the shopping center. Owners and managers must provide safe premises for visitors to their property. Even if there are multiple entities involved, the property must be safe. So, when owners and managers are negligent in their duties, they don’t take appropriate steps to ensure the safety of their visitors.

If you can prove the shopping center owner or manager was negligent in their responsibilities, and you were seriously injured, you might be entitled to financial compensation for the damage caused. Seeking the guidance of a skilled Florida shopping center accident lawyer can help you navigate through these complexities.
