Shoppers May Be Injured By Merchandise Falling From Store Shelves

Stores — especially large, warehouse-style stores — can be dangerous environments for shoppers. High shelves, heavy items, and crowding can all contribute to hazardous conditions, falling objects, and injuries. All of these factors make accidents caused by falling objects more and more common in retail settings.

The following circumstances may cause falling object injuries:

  • Unevenly or highly stacked items

  • Items that are not secured

  • Hazardous equipment use when picking up items

  • Narrow or crowded aisles

If you’ve been hurt by falling merchandise in a store, we will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident and help you obtain compensation for your injuries.

Construction Workers Are Especially Vulnerable to Falling Objects

Construction workers, when working under buildings, scaffolds, or heavy machinery, are at risk for falling object injuries. The weight and hazardous nature of most construction equipment and materials can contribute to catastrophic injuries and death. In fact, approximately one in ten construction fatalities are due to falling objects.

Falling object accidents in construction zones can be due to:

  • Missing guardrails
  • Scaffolding collapses
  • Crumbling buildings
  • Improperly secured items

In cases of construction site accidents, employers, equipment manufacturers, and safety inspectors could be liable for damages.

Types of Injuries From Falling Objects

Injuries from falling objects can range from a few bruises to concussions to permanent disabilities. More serious injuries can have devastating effects on a person's life, including career loss and lasting pain and suffering. Anyone hit by a falling object due to another's negligence deserves justice.
