Injury Lawsuits Against New York Malls, Supermarkets & Stores

Under the legal doctrine of “premises liability,” the owners of malls, stores, supermarkets, and bodegas in New York are responsible for maintaining their establishments in reasonably safe condition. But partly because of the numerous products they carry and partly due to employee or managerial negligence, many basic tasks, like proper cleaning and daily maintenance upkeep, can slip through the cracks.

If that “clean up on Aisle 5” doesn’t actually happen, shoppers in stores and supermarkets can suffer serious injuries in retail store accidents.

Common Hazards In New York City Malls, Retail Stores & Supermarkets

When you enter a mall, retail store, supermarket, or bodega in New York, you enter into an implicit agreement with the store’s owner. In exchange for your business, the property owner assumes responsibility for the condition of their shop. In addition to other factors, retail store owners agree to maintain a safe shopping environment and warn shoppers of potential safety hazards.

But both small, independently-owned shops and large chain supermarkets and malls can be host to potentially dangerous situations for shoppers. Our injury lawyers have handled retail store accident cases involving the following conditions:

  • Recently-mopped floors without proper warning signage
  • Spilled products on floor left uncleaned
  • Broken jars on supermarket shelves resulting in serious cuts
  • Uneven floors causing trip and fall accidents
  • Uncontrolled crowds during peak business hours
  • Parking lots and sidewalks covered in dangerous ice and snow
  • Faulty elevators and escalators
  • Improper lighting

Do I Have A Mall or Supermarket Injury Case?

For your accident to qualify as a “premises liability” case, the conditions that led to your injuries must satisfy several preconditions:

  • You were a “guest” of the mall, supermarket or retail store, a shopper or other authorized visitor, rather than a trespasser
  • The mall, shop or supermarket’s owner did know, or should have known, about the hazardous condition and did nothing or something inadequate to fix the problem
  • Your injuries resulted directly from the accident

Understandably, mall and supermarket fall cases are particularly complex, involving expert fact-finding and lengthy investigation procedures. The total damages may go far beyond medical expenses and lost wages, requiring particular legal knowledge and thorough attention. If you suspect that your situation fulfills the conditions listed above, we urge you to seek the guidance of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
