Falling Merchandise And Retail Store Injuries

Big box stores are working warehouses. Many people are injured by the movement of goods or negligent placement of merchandise. These can be serious injuries, especially when accidents involve heavy objects falling from above or power equipment.

The Ypsilanti law firm of Bredell & Bredell handles premises liability claims against retail stores for serious injuries to patrons. We take cases throughout Michigan involving accidents at Costco, Home Depot, Wal-Mart and other retailers. Unlike firms that angle for a quick settlement, our lawyers are committed to making sure that compensation covers the losses, even if that means filing suit and preparing for trial.

Holding Big Box Retailers Accountable For Accidents

In addition to slip-and-fall injuries, we have handled a wide range of injuries suffered by people shopping in retail stores, including:

  • Falling merchandise
  • Shelving collapse
  • Injuries involving carts, flatbeds or power jacks
  • Forklift accidents
  • Toxic exposures
  • Parking lot accidents

Such accidents commonly cause head injuries, bone fractures, lacerations, burns, scarring and other serious and permanent injuries. We pursue damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any lasting disability.

Not every accident is automatic grounds for a lawsuit. Our attorneys work to show that the management or employees failed to address hazardous conditions or disregarded safety protocols. A common example is a forklift in one aisle causing boxes or products to fall on patrons in the adjacent aisle; both areas should be cordoned off when using forklifts during store hours.

Do You Have A Claim Against The Store For Negligence?

Bredell & Bredell offers a free consultation and contingency fee representation. This means that you owe us nothing upfront to have your case evaluated and no attorney fees unless we recover compensation. We can also arrange home and hospital visits if you cannot travel to our offices in Ypsilanti or Jackson.
