Falling Merchandise Injury Lawyer

Warehouse stores are popular, offering lower prices by saving on overhead by storing merchandise on-site versus a separate warehouse. While the prices may be alluring, there may be dangers lurking. Merchandise that is stacked and stored on high shelving poses a risk for shoppers if it falls. If a family member or you were seriously injured due to falling merchandise at a local Florida store, it may be possible to receive compensation for injuries.

Even paper towels can be dangerous when an entire pallet slips off a high shelf onto a customer. If the pallet is not properly secured or the shelving collapses, merchandise can come tumbling down on unsuspecting consumers. Retail store owners and their management have a responsibility to keep everyone in the store safe from injury. If negligence on the part of the store staff causes merchandise to crash down on a customer, the retail establishment is most likely liable for any injuries that occur.

Types of Falling Merchandise Accidents

It is not just large warehouse stores that can have falling merchandise injure a customer. Almost any store with on-site products can have falling merchandise accidents cause injuries. Grocery stores, malls and even convenience stores may have accidents occur that cause serious injuries due to unsafe merchandise. These accidents include:

  • Toppling stacks of products
  • Fallen merchandise that causes a trip/fall hazard
  • Shelves failing under too much weight
  • Unbalanced shelves tipping over
  • Merchandise falling due to lack of restraints

In most cases, falling merchandise injuries are covered under premises liability laws, and the store owner is liable. They may be required to pay medical costs, lost wages and other damages for injuries caused by falling merchandise. However, to receive the maximum payout, you need an experienced attorney to fight for your rights. Contact Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law, and schedule a free consultation if you or a family member were seriously injured in a falling merchandise accident.

What Our Happy Clients say

Based on 21 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
