My Son Was Injured When He Was Shopping And Merchandise From Overhead Came Crashing Down On Him. Do We Have A Legal Claim?
We are sorry to hear that your son was injured from falling merchandise. Depending on the case specifics, it sounds like your son most likely has a claim against the store for their negligence.
Although rare, merchandise that is stored high on shelves has been known to shift and fall. Sadly, unsuspecting customers are often injured as a result. Stores have an obligation to keep their premises safe and secure merchandise from falling on top of customers. When they fail to secure merchandise and keep their grounds safe, injured victims can hold stores liable for their injuries.
A claim of this nature would be considered a premises liability lawsuit in Florida, and you should speak with a knowledgeable lawyer about your rights. Your son may be entitled to compensation for his ambulance ride, ER visit, hospital bills, all other medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages. However, stores and their insurance companies will not want to give you the amount of money your case is worth.
This is why it is important that you work with a skilled Broward County premises liability attorney who will answer your questions, protect your interests, and ensure you get the maximum compensation possible in your case.
