Whether your injury occurred in a restroom, dark hallway or in an elevator, it is important to seek the counsel of an experienced attorney to help you understand your options for monetary compensation.

New York City Shopping Center Accident Lawyers
Generally, accidents and assaults can be prevented by focusing attention on three different areas.
- Security: Many unscrupulous individuals pick their targets based on the amount of security at a mall or shopping center. It is imperative that property owners or managers provide a security staff, surveillance cameras, properly locking doors and entries, and mirrors around blind corners.
- Lighting: As malls get larger and more complex, it is crucial that property managers ensure the safety and security of their consumers by providing adequate lighting in all areas. Dark corners, long hallways and restrooms can become increasingly dangerous as fluorescent lights begin to flicker and go out.
- General maintenance: Mall owners and maintenance staff members must be diligent in repairing torn carpeting, broken tiles, faulty escalators and broken elevators. Consumers can get seriously injured in a fall and suffer significant injuries.
It is the duty of the operators to ensure a safe shopping experience. Property owners and managers are inviting consumers to their property to have an enjoyable time and spend money. The managers must make the property safe, make it secure and maintain the property.
