If you have been injured while shopping in or visiting a shopping centre, then you may be entitled to compensation.

Shopping centres must take reasonable steps to provide a safe environment for everyone who works in, shops at, and visits them.

This includes regular monitoring and prompt cleaning of any spills or breakages, and generally maintaining the premises to ensure it is free from hazards.

Examples of shopping centre injuries in NSW include:

  • Slips, trips and falls inside a shopping centre;
  • Slips, trips and falls in a car park;
  • Injuries as a pedestrian in a car park;
  • Injuries caused by shopping trolleys;
  • Burns and other accidents in and around food courts;
  • Injuries sustained as an employee, contractor, supplier or worker;
  • Supermarket slip and falls.

The injuries sustained can be serious, such as:

  • Broken or fractured bones;
  • Sprained or torn ligaments;
  • Hand or wrist injury;
  • Leg, ankle or foot injury;
  • Back, shoulder or neck injury;
  • Internal bleeding;
  • Head or brain injury;
  • Psychological injury or illness including PTSD, anxiety or depression.

Claiming Compensation for an Injury at a Shopping Centre

If you have sustained an injury or illness as a result of a shopping centre accident, then you know that it can substantially affect your life.

At first, you may not realise the extent of your injuries. This could be due to shock or the nature of your injuries. It is important that you seek medical attention immediately, and where possible, report the accident to the shopping centre’s centre management staff or an attending employee or security guard.

Your next step should be to contact Lionheart Lawyers. We have more than 50 years of combined experience in successfully pursuing public liability claims and are here to obtain the compensation you are entitled to.

A shopping centre compensation claim may cover:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Loss of income if you are unable to work;
  • Ongoing medical treatment;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Domestic assistance for day-to-day tasks.

If your injury or impairment is permanent, then you may be entitled to make additional claims, including a TPD (total permanent disability) claim through your superannuation fund.

There are time limits associated with these types of compensation claims, so the sooner you contact us, the better.

Call us for a free initial consultation in which we can assess your case and advise you if you have a valid claim for compensation.

Shopping Centre Slips, Trips & Falls Injury Claims

When you choose Lionheart Lawyers for your shopping centre injury compensation claim, we will listen to you and thoroughly assess your case, including the extent of your injuries or illness, to ensure we claim all the compensation you are entitled to.

The first step is to gather evidence of the accident, including any photographs, security footage, witness statements and accident reports.

The next step is to gather medical evidence of your injuries or illness caused by the accident.

Once we have all the documentation in order, we will lodge your claim with the shopping centre’s insurer. If the insurer does not offer a reasonable settlement, then we will guide you through the next steps, which may include commencing court proceedings.

If your claim ends up in court, rest assured that our expert lawyers are ready to fight for you and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Court proceedings must begin within three years of your injury date, unless you have the court’s approval, so it is important that you contact us as quickly as possible after your accident to lodge your shopping centre injury claim.
