Falling Object Accidents

Brooklyn Falling Objects Injury LawyerAlthough shopping in bulk has become more convenient in recent days, there has also been an increase in dangerous situations associated with large warehouse-like stores with shelves stacked high with heavy items towering above normal reach.

More and more, these items are falling to the ground, and too many times, innocent people are getting hurt by objects falling from those overcrowded shelves.

If you have been seriously injured by a falling object whether you are in a superstore or elsewhere, you may need the services of Brooklyn personal injury attorney Jay S. Knispel.

At the Law Offices of Jay S. Knispel Personal Injury Lawyers, we specialize in helping those victims throughout New York City, the Bronx, and Brooklyn areas who have been seriously injured by the negligence of others.  Call (718) 802-1600 today for a free consultation.

Falling Object Premises Liability and Negligence

When a person is injured on property belonging to some other person or entity, there is the possibility that the injury was due to negligence by the property owner.  Examples of negligence that may cause falling object injury are:

  • Objects stacked too high
  • Objects stacked without being properly secured on upper shelves
  • Pathways between shelving are too narrow to pass through safely
  • Improper equipment used to remove items from higher shelves

It is, of course, your responsibility to be aware of your situation and move cautiously throughout the store, but even following all precautions, poorly stacked items can fall from the upper shelves and cause serious injury.

Falling Objects Accident Compensation

Falling objects can cause serious injuries to the head, brain, spine, and neck, fractured or broken bones, depending on where the object hit and how heavy it was.  Based on your injuries and other factors, our attorneys may be able to collect damages for:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Other medical care
  • Pain and suffering

Serious injuries require serious compensation.  Our Brooklyn falling objects accident attorneys will investigate the incident thoroughly and work hard to recover the maximum compensation permitted by law.

Of course, there are times when people are injured, occasionally even seriously injured, through their own negligence.  Shopping at a superstore or somewhere similar, and having a heavy object or product fall from the shelves above does not fall under that category.

This is a situation where you deserve to be compensated for your injuries.

If you believe your injuries were caused by negligence on the part of the property owner or store manager, contact the Law Offices of Jay S. Knispel Personal Injury Lawyers today for a free consultation regarding your situation.
