Compensation for serious injuries caused by falling objects

Chances are that you or someone you know has been hurt in a fall or by a falling object. If you have been harmed in a fall or from something falling on you in a place of business, you may need to pursue a premises liability claim in order to receive compensation for your medical care, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Something as simple as a can of food in a grocery store or a trip in an unlit hallway in an apartment building can lead to serious injuries. A single falling object striking a person may results in cuts, bruises or fractures. A larger object can crush a person, cause lasting brain damage or death. 

Of particular concern in recent years has been catastrophic injuries caused by falling merchandise in warehouses and warehouse stores and on construction sites.

Collapsing structures

There are cases of shelves 20 feet high collapsing, and even causing a domino effect with adjacent shelving. When a forklift backs off a loading dock, there is a chance of multiple deaths.

The problem with construction sites is that the premises are often in a state of near chaos, as walkways are altered, roads are rerouted and safety zones are compromised by the task at hand.

Some falling accidents, like a hammer slipping from a worker's grip, are hard to prevent, even with safety nets and other devices.

The need for representation

It is to a business's advantage - and its customers' convenience - to have everything in one place. But without diligent organization and maintenance of stock areas and testing of them for strength, catastrophic accidents occur.

You and your family members may be entitled to compensation if an accident occurs that causes serious injuries. When negligence occurs and precautions fail, seek help recovering your losses.
