New York Slip & Fall

Morgan & Morgan's premises liability attorneys may be able to help you recover compensation for the injuries you have suffered while on another’s property. There are many types of premises liability cases, ranging from elevator accidents to negligent security claims to slip & fall accidents.

Highlighted Slip & Fall: Shopping Malls

The slip and fall dangers at malls are endless. Falls can happen both outside in the parking lot due to potholes and cracked sidewalks or inside due to escalator malfunctions and wet floors. If you happen to have been injured while at a shopping mall, then you may be entitled to file two claims for personal injury. One of the claims will be against the mall and the other one against the store in which you were shopping.

Before you file a claim you should take the following steps:

  • Seek Medical Treatment. It is important to see a doctor so that you can be treated and your injuries can be properly documented.
  • Report the Accident. Report your fall to a manager, owner or landlord. Try to get the details of the incident in writing to verify your account of the accident.
  • Document Everything. Collect the names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses for all potential witnesses. pictures of the exact location where you fell and make sure to photograph any stairs, icy patches, or other conditions that contributed to your accident. Also make note of what you were wearing, as this can often become a key piece of evidence in slip and fall accidents.
  • Decline to Give Statements. Remain calm and limit your communication with the property owner or store manager and decline to give a statement to an insurance company until you've spoken to an attorney.

Don't get stuck for an accident caused by the mall owner and property managers’ negligence. If you or a loved one were in an accident at a shopping mall, fill out our online form for a free, no obligation case review.

Elements of a Slip and Fall Claim

How can you determine if you have a valid slip and fall claim? Generally, two elements have to be satisfied for you to potentially qualify for compensation for your damages:

  • The property owner knew or should have known that the property contained a dangerous condition; and
  • The property owner did not repair the dangerous condition or provide notice to visitors regarding the dangerous condition.

What makes a property dangerous? The general rules for that are:

  • It presents an unreasonable risk of harm to the people on the property; and
  • A reasonable person would not have anticipated that the condition existed.
