People throughout Florida head to warehouse stores every day to purchase things like food, paper towels, and household items. Warehouse stores are popular across America because they provide shoppers with a large variety of items as well as reasonably priced merchandise.

Some of these types of stores include:

  • Home Depot
  • Lowe’s
  • Sam’s Club
  • Costco
  • BJ’s Wholesale Club
  • Wal-Mart
  • Target
  • Toys ‘R’ Us
  • Other warehouse stores

While these types of stores are popular, shoppers need to be aware that there are certain risks involved when shopping at warehouse stores. One hazard can actually be caused from merchandise. Merchandise is typically stacked overhead and high on shelves and can come crashing down. If a customer happens to be underneath the merchandise when it falls off of the shelf, a customer can suffer serious injuries.

As a result of merchandise shifting or not being put away properly and securely, thousands of people across this nation have been seriously injured. Unfortunately, the number of falling merchandise accidents in Florida and nationwide have risen due to the increased number of warehouse stores and the popularity for these types of stores.
