Falling Merchandise Injury Lawyers
INJURED BY FALLING MERCHANDISE?
If you were hurt from falling merchandise in a store, you may be able to file a claim against the store for your injuries.
Store owners have a legal duty to make sure the property is safe for those who enter. This means that stores must warn you of any dangerous conditions that they are aware of or should have been aware of. If the employees improperly stocked a shelf, or failed to fix unsafe placement of goods left by another customer, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries.
Fortunately, you do not have to face this difficult time alone. The falling merchandise injury lawyers at Zinda Law Group have helped countless injury victims seek compensation for their injuries.

Store Responsibility for Falling Merchandise Injuries
A person who is injured by falling merchandise may file a premises liability claim against the store. A premises liability claim alleges that there was a dangerous condition on the property that injured the victim, and that the store had a duty to remedy the condition, but failed to do so. The following must be proved in a premises liability claim:
- A dangerous condition existed in the store
- The store knew or should have been aware of the condition
- The store failed to remedy the situation
- The victim’s injury was caused by the dangerous condition
To prove that the store should have known of the condition, a victim may use evidence of prior accidents or the fact that there were store employees in the area who could have seen the dangerous condition and failed to remedy it. If no sufficient attempt was made to fix the problem, and it ended up injuring someone, then the store may be liable.
FILING A CLAIM FOR FALLING MERCHANDISE INJURIES
If you were injured in a store because merchandise fell on you, you may want to file a personal injury claim to seek compensation for your injuries. Below are some steps you should take after an accident involving fallen merchandise:

A falling merchandise injury lawyer at Zinda Law Group may assist you in gathering and organizing the evidence of your claim. Your attorney may also ask the court to release the store’s surveillance footage of the accident, and create a robust case that helps prove that the store is liable for your injuries.
3. NEGOTIATION AND SETTLEMENT
A lawyer may understand how much your case is worth and may assist you in conducting negotiations with the store in order to help you seek a fair settlement amount. An attorney may present your claim in the light most favorable to you and seek maximum compensation for your injuries through negotiation with the store, insurance companies, or any other necessary parties.
If negotiation fails to result in an appropriate settlement, a falling merchandise injury lawyer at Zinda Law Group may take the store to court on your behalf to seek compensation for your injuries.
Do I Need a Lawyer?
Taking appropriate steps in the early stages of a claim may be critical to obtaining a fair resolution. If you were injured as the result of negligence in maintaining a safe environment for shoppers, you should obtain a consultation with a personal injury attorney who has experience pursuing this type of case.
It may be especially challenging to sue a large corporation because they often have the money and resources to cover serious injuries, but also have experienced attorneys to fight legal claims. Additionally, store managers are often trained to act quickly after an accident in limiting their exposure to liability. Evidence of an accident is often cleaned up immediately and may be difficult to find. Hiring an attorney may help you establish fault and protect your rights against a large corporation.
