I am sorry to hear about this situation.
The mall is arguably liable to you in this situation. Someone in your situation was an invitee. An invitee in GA has to exercise ordinary care for personal safety when on a business property, but also, the business's duty to invitees is to "exercise ordinary care in keeping the premises and approaches safe." OCGA § 51-3-1.
By the chair breaking, the business breached that duty and may be sued for negligence. I would find a personal injury attorney immediately. The attorney should take this on a contingency basis, meaning they do not get paid unless you do. Usual set up is their take is 33% settlement, 40% win at trial, 45% at appeal; plus some office costs. Everything is negotiable. Let me know if you need help finding someone.
