A shopping mall is full of potential accident risks meaning there are certain common shopping mall injuries that are more likely to occur whilst out and about. One of the most common accidents to occur in a mall is slips, trips or falls.
How do slips, trips and falls occur in a shopping mall?
There are a variety of ways in which a shopper could sustain a slip, trip or fall injury whilst browsing the stores. These range from slipping on a puddle of liquid or spilt food to sustaining a fall injury on a box left on the floor.
Not all slips, trips or falls that happen within a mall can be blamed on the shop owners. Trip injuries can easily be caused by people not looking where they are walking especially those with push chairs and trolleys as these cause more severe trip injuries to the person they collide into.
What types of slip, trip or fall injuries could be incurred?
If you were to have a slip, trip or fall you may just get away with a bruise or graze. However, the more severe the fall, the worse the injury. Depending on how hard you fall and what you fall onto and the height you fell from you could be looking at broken bones, lacerations or worse.
At their most dangerous, slips, trips and falls can be fatal so you should always be aware of your surroundings to help avoid any potential trip risks.
If you have had a slip, trip or fall, whether it was in a shopping mall or anywhere else, if it wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim.
