Have you been injured due to a slip & fall at Northpark Mall in Dallas, TX?
Slip and fall accidents account for numerous injuries in malls around the country. This may happen due to a wet floor, faulty escalators, debris or foreign objects around parking lots, or a host of other issues. You may be eligible to some form of compensation if slipped, fell and hurt yourself at Northpark Mall. It all depends on the facts of your situation, and the nature of your injuries.
Premises liability refers to accidents that occur as a result of a property defect or negligence on someone’s property. While some accidents are unavoidable, property owners must make sure that anything which might pose a threat to someone’s safety should be removed in a timely manner.
In these cases, the property owner must have known (or should have known) about the slippery surface or hazard beforehand. For instance, if the owner knew about a pair of faulty escalators but chose to do nothing about it within a reasonable amount of time, this infers negligence which is one of the foundations of a premises liability suit.
Determining reasonableness in a premises liability case might not be as clear cut as it seems. For example, you might need to prove that the property owner had a regular maintenance schedule yet failed to be consistent with it, causing your injury. At the same time, you might need to show that poor lighting, lack or visible signs and other factors might have contributed to your injury.
A premises liability lawsuit enables you to receive compensation which you can use to pay off hospitalization and medical bills, reimbursement of income for days when you couldn't go to work as well as ongoing care to ensure that you get back to being yourself.
