Unsecured Merchandise Causing Head InjuriesWhen employees negligently install shelving equipment or when they mishandle the stocking of shelves, such injuries can occur. In fact stores that fail to properly secure the products correctly or if the employee mishandles the product when stocking the shelves, the establishment can be held liable. However, each case is based on the facts and the surrounding set of circumstances leading up to the injury. If you were hurt immediately seek medical attention for your injuries and make sure to get a copy of the incident report. Injured parties are often given the runaround by the insurance company. Many are told that “they do not have a case” or that “the case is currently being investigated“. However, very few cases that are unrepresented receive any type of results. Insurance companies will generally take advantage of unrepresented claimants and either offer them a low-ball offer or completely deny the claim.
