Who Is Liable in a Washington Mall Slip and Fall Case?
When it comes to liability for slip and falls in a Washington mall, two primary parties may be responsible for your injury: The property owner and the business owner. Slip and falls are premises liability cases, meaning they involve some danger or defect on the property (the premises) that leads to someone’s harm. In premises liability cases, you’ll need to find out who was responsible for maintaining the premises. Then you’ll need to discover whether they knew or should have known that there was a danger and if they failed to correct the issues as per their duty. In a mall setting, the entity responsible for maintaining the premises is either the mall owner or the individual retailers who rent the space and own a business in the mall.
Generally, the mall owner is liable for falls and accidents that occur in the common spaces inside or surrounding the mall. This includes parking lots, garages, hallways, bathrooms, lobbies, and other sitting areas.
Businesses selling products or offering services inside the mall are usually responsible for slip and falls (or trip and falls) that occur within their physical store. It is possible that both the retailer and the mall owner may have played a role in your accident; therefore both may be liable for your damages. Our Washington mall slip and fall injury lawyers can help you determine who is liable for your accident and ensure the right party is held accountable.

These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Inititailly called a law firm (the one that has lots of ads on the radio), but they declined my case. Van Law Firm accepted my case without a second thought! Kudos to Daniel, my case manager, and Amanda who expedited my payment process. Highly recommended.Milby Mags
Got in an accident at the beginning of the year and they have been awesome, especially with it being my first accident and me being like this. They have been very communicated, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t and answered any question I had. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone I have talked to there has been very friendly. I would give them a 10 out of 10.Ethan Gullet
They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them to which included the gap for my car that was totaled. My medical costs were taken care of and reduced substantially so I was able to get more on my settlement. My case manager, Will Garcia, was always helpful in assisting me and answering any questions I had. They really did an amazing job with my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of this type of legal help. Most lawyers do not help you with the recovery of the car and rental etc. They are amazing.Teresa Cuthbertson
