Shopping Mall — Security

Customers at shopping malls come from all over the area with money in hand, assuming that mall security is not a concern. Unfortunately, this situation is likely to attract a criminal element. It is crucial that the mall management staff works diligently to ensure the safety and security of consumers.

At Keogh Crispi, our New York City attorneys have over 40 years of experience guiding clients through the process of recovering money through a lawsuit after an injury at a mall or retail shopping center. If you or a family member was injured or assaulted in a shopping center, it is important to contact an experienced attorney to learn more about your options for monetary compensation.

Maximum Recovery From A Shopping Center Injury

Ensuring the safety and security of mall visitors can mean anything from having adequate lighting to surveillance cameras or an actual security staff. Mall management and property owners have a duty to protect the safety of their customers. If they are negligent or inattentive, serious incidents can occur.

We will carefully examine all aspects of your situation in order to properly determine liability. Once liability is established, we will negotiate with the at-fault party's insurance carrier on your behalf to reach a beneficial settlement, or pursue your best possible outcome at trial, if necessary.

A security staff must be:

  • Well trained
  • Visible
  • Provided with the proper equipment
  • Attentive
  • Aware of dangerous areas
  • Aware of the history of criminal activity in the area

In some situations, a staff member is not properly screened before being hired. When this happens, it is not uncommon for a security staff member to do more harm than good. Trust us to aggressively represent you through all stages of your case.
