Large warehouse superstores are a common sight throughout Ohio and the United States. Stores like Home Depot, Lowes, Kmart, Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, BJ’s, Costco, Sears, Toys R Us and Babies R Us all have profited greatly by using the large warehouse superstore model. However, while profitable for those companies, tens of thousands of injuries have occurred nationwide to unsuspecting customers and employees when even small items of merchandise have fallen off high store shelves.

Because of the height of the racks and shelves used to stack merchandise within the customer areas of the large warehouse superstores, any falling merchandise has the potential of severely and even fatally injuring customers. Negligent employees who fail to properly stack merchandise on shelves, employees who drop or knock merchandise off shelves, and customers who improperly restack merchandise all can lead to injury. Our firm will quickly investigate your accident to determine the cause, who was responsible and whether you are entitled to compensation.
Large warehouse superstores, and retail stores in general, have a legal duty to provide a safe store for their customers. There are known safety precautions available to avoid falling merchandise accidents. Careless large warehouse superstores may not implement these measures, or a store may not have a safety policy in place. If falling merchandise caused your injury, you may deserve compensation.
