Injuries Affecting Customers at Restaurants and Stores

A premises liability claim or lawsuit will seek to hold a property owner responsible for injuries to customers or visitors that were caused by negligence. When injuries occur at a public location such as a shopping mall, department store, grocery store, or restaurant, determining who was responsible can sometimes be a complex matter. In addition to the owner of the property, negligent parties may include a commercial tenant who was in control of a piece of property or other parties who conducted business in a public location or who committed acts of negligence that caused injuries to customers.

Injuries at stores, shopping centers, and restaurants may involve:

  • Slip, trip, and fall accidents - Wet floors, tripping hazards, or damaged walking surfaces may cause customers to fall down, and they may suffer multiple types of serious injuries. Dangerous falls can also occur at department stores or shopping malls if railings or stairwells are defective or damaged, and falls from an upper level to a lower level can lead to catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.
  • Negligent security - An establishment should make sure the proper security systems and other measures are in place to protect patrons' safety. Lack of security guards at a shopping center or failure to use crowd control methods at busy times of year may result in injuries by unruly or aggressive customers. Inadequate lighting in a shopping center's parking garage or parking lot may lead to assaults or robberies.
  • Elevator or escalator malfunctions - Customers may suffer falls or other injuries due to defective elevator equipment, or a person's limbs may be caught in a defective escalator. Victims may pursue compensation through a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of defective equipment, or they may be able to take legal action against an establishment that failed to ensure that elevators or escalators were properly maintained.
  • Food poisoning - Restaurants may serve food that is contaminated by harmful viruses, bacteria, or other toxins. Customers who experience foodborne illnesses may be able to take legal action to address negligence such as failure to follow the correct sanitary practices when preparing food.
