Are you claiming compensation in South Lakeland from a shopping mall?
Although many shopping malls are located in towns and cities, dedicated retail sites are also being developed in more rural areas. This means that most people can access a shopping centre or mall relatively easily, regardless of where they are based in the United Kingdom.
Instead of having numerous independent stores up and down the high street, shopping malls tend to have a variety of stores and brands under one roof. Although the shops may be responsible for what happens within their premises, it is the mall owners who are often held responsible for what happens in the mall itself.
In order to ensure that shoppers and staff are safe, most malls do have security staff in place, in addition to cleaning and maintenance staff. By monitoring shoppers on CCTV, staff can often be aware of an incident within seconds and can either deal with it or cordon the area off to protect members of the public.
If, for example, someone was to spill a drink and it wasn’t cleaned up, a shopper could slip or fall. Whilst this may seem like a rather minor incident, if the shopper suffers serious injuries, the mall owners could be held responsible and they could face a significant claim for compensation in South Lakeland.
Similarly, the mall owners and staff must make sure that the building is structurally safe before anyone is allowed to enter. If, for example, an escalator wasn’t working very well, it would be advisable for it to be closed and cordoned off, rather than risking someone’s safety by letting them use it.
