Chicago Personal Injury Lawyer

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season comes retail shopping at malls, shopping centers, and supermarkets. In the midst of all this commotion, accidents that result in serious injuries can sometimes occur. These accidents and injuries are sometimes attributable to negligent drivers and poor parking lot and parking garage maintenance. Moreover, in the midst of the holiday rush, retailers and other businesses are more interested in making a sale while paying less attention to the condition of their premises. 

If you have been injured while shopping, and your accident and injuries can be attributed to someone else (or to some legal entity), the experienced Chicago personal injury lawyers at Malman Law may be able to help. Our legal team can investigate the circumstances that caused your accident and can help you pursue monetary compensation for your injuries. 

Give us a call today at (312) 629-0099 or contact us online to learn more about how we could assist you throughout your personal injury case. 

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents on shopping mall or shopping center premises can result in serious injuries and damages. Some common injuries suffered in slip and fall accidents include head injuries, neck and back injuries, soft tissue injuries, and fractures. 

Retail establishments, including shopping centers and shopping malls, owe a duty to their customers to maintain their premises at all times and keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition. These establishments also have a duty to warn about defective conditions – or to repair those unsafe and hazardous conditions within a reasonable period of time. When they fail to do this, an injured slip and fall accident victim could make a legal claim against the retail establishment for damages arising out of the injury or injuries suffered. 

Parking Lot and Parking Garage Accidents

Parking lot and parking garage accidents can happen in a variety of different ways. In some cases, these accidents occur when a careless motor vehicle operator collides with a pedestrian in the parking lot or parking garage, severely injuring that person. At other times, these accidents occur because of unsafe conditions in and around the garage or lot. Some common examples of unsafe conditions on the premises include the following:

  1. Potholes 
  2. Concrete spalling, cracks, and other surface defects
  3. Malfunctioning elevators and escalators
  4. Loose stairs or railings 
  5. Poor security 
  6. Slippery substances that are not removed within a reasonable period of time

If you suffered an injury in a parking lot or parking garage because of a negligent, reckless, or distracted motor vehicle driver, you may be able to make a claim or file a lawsuit directly against that driver. On the other hand, if your injury resulted from a surface defect, loose railing, malfunctioning equipment, or similar defect, you may be able to assert a cause of action against the owner/operator of the parking lot or garage.
