Many people that suffer injuries on an individual's or entity's premises don't just suffer physically but financially as well. When people suffer from an injury that could have been prevented by standard safety procedures on the premises, they are likely to be entitled to compensation as a result. However, many injury victims are cautious about taking action for one reason or another.
If you have been injured in a shopping mall in the state of California, it is important to reflect on the event and question whether the premises manager or owner could have done something to prevent it. The medical bills and lost wages suffered could be compensated for, and you may gain additional compensation for the suffering you endured.
How will I be able to prove that the injury was the fault of the premises manager or owner?
All public premises managers or owners have the legal responsibility to maintain safety. If your injury occurred because the safety was not adequately maintained, then the premises manager, owner or both will likely be held responsible. For example, if you tripped on a staircase that was damaged, the premises manager, owner or both would likely be deemed negligent in their failure to make repairs.
Do I have enough evidence to make a claim?
If you have medical bills, you should be able to prove that damages occurred as a result of the injury. It would be beneficial if you also took pictures of the injury and of the hazardous conditions that led to your injury.
If you are not sure whether to make a personal injury claim after your accident at a shopping mall, it is a good idea to speak with an experienced attorney for guidance.
