Thank you..
I am so sorry that you and your son were involved in an accident at the mall.
The incident that you have described, however, is not an event that can be classified as a crime that qualifies you for the U visa.
You can visit with a qualified and experienced immigration attorney that can assess other options that may be available to you.
Kevin L Dixler agrees with this answer
Again, this is likely not a crime, so no U visa. However, you ought to speak with a personal injury attorney where you were taken to the hospital as a result of injuries or can prove injury as a result of the incident.
It’s unclear whether there is negligence and who was at fault.
