Frequently Asked Questions about Mall Slip and Fall Accidents in New Jersey

Can I hold a shopping mall store owner responsible for my injuries?

In most cases, the liability for injuries resulting from a slip and fall accident in common areas in a mall falls on the owner or management of the mall. However, there are instances when the shop owner may be held liable for the accident. For example, if the store owner was responsible for the control over that particular part of the property and failed to clean a spill that resulted in the slip and fall accident, they can be held liable for the accident. Another example, is when a merchant leaves goods or places a display in the path of customers and this results in an accident, they can be held liable for injuries and damages resulting from the accident.

I was injured in a slip-and-fall accident in a mall. However, I didn’t find out about my injuries until days later. Can I still make a claim for compensation?

It isn’t uncommon to discover injuries related to your accident several days after the actual accident. Many times the symptoms of injuries aren’t obvious until several days after the accident. It is therefore important to seek medical attention immediately after an accident. This will help to identify any injuries that you have suffered even when the symptoms aren’t obvious.

You can still seek compensation for your injuries even if time has passed since your accident. You may, however, have a harder time showing that the slip and fall accident is the cause of the injuries you are suffering. It is advisable that you seek the guidance and representation of an experienced New Jersey mall slip and fall accident lawyer.

We at the Epstein Law Firm, P.A. are experienced in defending the rights of injured clients. We will seek out the evidence required to prove that the accident caused your injuries. This includes interviewing employees and witnesses as well as sitting through surveillance footage. We will work to ensure that you recover the compensation that is rightly yours.
