Shopping Mall and Supermarket Injuries

Recover for Shopping Mall or Supermarket Injuries in New Jersey

Our firm has handled personal injury cases since 1976

When you walk into a shopping mall or a supermarket, you usually feel safe. This is partly because of the doctrine of premises liability, which imposes certain duties on property owners and possessors. Yet, these places can be filled with dangerous conditions that can result in serious injuries.

Seigel Law was established in 1976 to represent catastrophic injury victims in Ridgewood, Hackensack, Fair Lawn, Teaneck, Garfield, Fort Lee, Newark, Jersey City, Paterson, Elizabeth and Clifton. Our lawyers investigate the circumstances of your injuries and take action to hold negligent parties responsible for premises liability.

Grocery store accidents

With shelves piled with juicy fruits, slippery meats and jars of liquids, spills occur from time to time. However, the supermarket staff has a duty to inspect the premises periodically and to clean up just these types of hazardous messes before anybody slips and falls.

The timing is vital in these cases. If a spill occurred seconds before you slipped and fell, the supermarket would have a strong defense against liability. However, if the slick substance was present for a while, the grocery chain failed at its duty to its customers.

To determine how long the hazard existed, we inspect such aspects as:

  • Color — Was the spilled substance brown and curdled, rather than bright and fresh?
  • Spread — Did the liquid spread from the area of the initial spill?
  • Tracks — Were there footprints, indicating several people walked through the hazard before it was cleaned up?
  • Eyewitness accounts — Did other customers or the staff notice the danger prior to your fall?

Shopping mall accidents

Injuries at shopping malls often involve multiple negligent parties — including the individual storeowners and the landlords who own the building and parking lots. Our attorneys can assist you in recovering compensation for:

  • Inadequate security measures — including guards, video cameras and appropriate lighting
  • Blocked aisles and walkways
  • Cracked or uneven sidewalks
  • Slick surfaces or ice
  • Snow accumulation
  • Unmarked construction areas
  • Unmaintained elevators and escalators
  • Low railings on high floors

    After the misfortune of suffering an injury, I had the good fortune to choose Seigel Law to represent me. During my initial meeting with Jan Seigel, I found him to be extremely confident and reassuring---he totally put me at ease. I was represented by Mark Mc Bratney---an EXCELLENT attorney. He was supportive and professional through the entire process, and provided an excellent outcome for my case.
