(PRWEB) November 11, 2013
Adnan Munawar, a senior partner in New York City based personal injury firm Munawar & Andrews-Santillo, LLP today released a statement commenting on safe shopping practices at malls during the holiday season. Munawar issued the statement in light of a report of a woman whose foot was crushed in an escalator while shopping at a mall.
According to a report from NBC 4 New York (I-Team: Macy’s Escalator Needed Maintenance When It Crushed Girl’s Foot, October 23, 2013), a mall escalator in New Jersey crushed the foot of a young girl and caused her to lose two toes, despite having been singled out for maintenance work months previously.
“In my view, negligence in big shopping malls is far too common for comfort,” said Munawar. “For this reason, I would advise anyone who plans to frequent a busy shopping mall during the holiday season to take extra care while shopping, especially around staircases, elevators and escalators, where overcrowding can increase the probability of unfortunate accidents such as this one.”
“As always, anyone who is involved in an accident like this should seek out professional legal counsel to get a thorough exploration of their rights, and potential for compensation.”
