Helping Recover Compensation For Injuries Caused Due To Falling Objects

Accidents involving falling objects or merchandise can be painful and frustrating. Many falling object accidents are caused by merchandise being stacked too high at a store. In some stores, customers have to stretch to reach merchandise on shelves or ask a clerk to get the products for them by using a ladder or stool. Typically, these items are unstable and not properly secured to the shelves. Store employees often receive little or no training in proper stocking techniques.

Additionally, construction sites cause falling object accidents when construction material is not properly secured and falls on pedestrians passing by. Another common scenario is when debris falls from an improperly maintained or diseased tree, such as a palm tree, and hits pedestrians under the tree. Due to the height of palm trees, the tree's heavy debris picks up speed and is likely to cause serious injury or even death.

At Asatryan Law, our attorneys can help you recover compensation if you have been injured by a falling object. We know that these situations can result in serious injuries that require extremely costly medical care. We will develop a strategy that allows us to pursue maximum compensation from those parties who failed to take the appropriate measures to prevent these accidents from happening.

Your Safety Is Important

Falling object accidents are relatively easy to prevent. Store owners can properly train store employees, post signs to warn customers of the risks of falling merchandise, or block aisles when stocking is in progress. Merchants usually know about the dangers of falling merchandise but take no action whatsoever to warn or safeguard their customers.

When merchants negligently or carelessly fail to make their stores safe, under California law they may be held responsible for their acts. Those working at a construction site can make sure construction materials are properly stored and secured. Property owners have a duty to adequately maintain their trees so that pedestrians are not hit by falling tree debris.

What Matters Most Is You

Property owners and managers will typically deny any responsibility for falling objects and debris, which is why it is important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side.
