Mall of America site of ridiculous slip and fall incident

As we have talked about before, many restaurants and establishments fail to adequately address spills and liquids on the ground in a timely manner. As a result of this negligence, innocent people can suffer life-altering injuries. You do not need to look any further than the Mall of America. A story that dates back to 2010 is coming to light now as three people suffered slip and falls to the same spill area in less than nine minutes.

The incident involved a 10-year-old girl at the time. She slipped and fell on a clear liquid in the food court. Four minutes later, another person slipped and fell on the same spot. Around this time, mall staff finally came out and cleaned up the spill and placed a warning sign.

But that did not stop a third person, a child, from slipping and falling around the site of the "cleaned up" spill. There is video footage of this happening.

The then 10-year-old, who is now 18, had to stop playing sports as a result of the fall she suffered. She was on crutches for months with a serious knee injury. Hopefully this girl's story will lead to better premises safety and a heightened awareness of negligent facilities management.

Those who are responsible for keeping patrons and customers safe need to be held responsible when they fail to uphold this very basic part of their job.
