How Does Furniture Tip Over or Collapse at a Furniture Store?
If furniture is in the habit of tipping over or collapsing at a furniture store, you need to look at the owner and operator of the establishment as to why this is happening. The furniture at a furniture store should be properly secured to a wall, in order to keep it from tipping over a customer looking at the furniture in the store.
If the furniture store owner and operators have rugs, carpets or other flooring that is loose around furniture that is able to be tipped, the customers will be forever at risk of a crushing serious personal injury from an accident at that store.
Tall Furniture Should Be Anchored to the Wall at a Furniture Store
If a furniture has tall furniture, it should be anchored directly to the wall to prevent falling down on a customer in the store. Any time that there is tall furniture at a furniture store, there is the chance that a customer can offset the furniture by looking at it. You may wonder how this can happen. Well, it can happen quite easily. Be that as it may, if you are injured by tall furniture that tips over and crushes you, just call us right now at the DTLA Law Group. We know what to do to initiate a lawsuit on your behalf, and we can go over your personal injury claim today as well.
Customers Often “Kick the Tires” on Furniture in a Furniture Store, Making the Furniture Unsafe and Hazardous
Many times, a customer in a furniture store will look at furniture and “kick the tires” as it were, to check the sturdiness of the furniture item. You might be surprised to know, that some potential buys of furniture go to great lengths to “test” the furniture that they are considering buying. If the owner and operator of a furniture store are not vigilant in looking at their furniture and keeping it in a safe state at the close of each day, they can miss someone who has partially tipped a piece of furniture on the sales floor.
Customers will check and test furniture in a number of ways, that make it dangerous for the next person coming along to review the same items. Here are some examples of what a customer can do to make furniture unsafe in a furniture store, such as:
- Tipping the furniture to see if it will fall down
- Pulling furniture away from the wall to check it out
- Looking underneath furniture to see how it’s made
- Trying to take apart furniture
- Moving the display of furniture to see under the item
- Putting furniture at an angle to see how it looks
- Moving carpeting or other items to see furniture better
- Moving large furniture around off of tip resistant displays to see it better
You are not the owner of a furniture store; therefore, you are not the primary person or persons responsible for the safety of the customers who go into the store to buy that furniture. In order to initiate a lawsuit, you need to call our law office at the DTLA Law Group today. We are here to take your call right now.
Furniture Stores That Play It Safe Use Many Different Types of Furniture Anchors
If a furniture store is interested in playing it safe for the safety of its customers, it can employ many different types of anchors to ensure the furniture won’t collapse or tip over. If a piece of furniture tips over onto a customer, it can harm the person and make a serious crushing injury.
The anchors that are acceptable for a furniture store to use to secure furniture on display can include:
- Drywall anchors
- Wall tethers attached to furniture
- Baseboard hooking
- Tapped toggle bolts
- Plastic adhesive hooks
Blocking furniture in with other furniture will not work, as customers are famous for moving furniture around to see the back of an item. It is imperative that the customers in a furniture store feel safe whenever they are in the store to look at furniture.
People Can Die in a Furniture Crushing Injury
Furniture can be heavy, and heavy furniture that tips over onto a customer can actually kill the person. Many types of furniture can be lethal to a furniture store customer, such as with heavy furniture such as:
- Chest of drawers
- Shelving units
- Long style clocks
- Separate wardrobe
- Large metal filing cabinets
- Gun safes
- Heavy night stand
- Large complex entertainment centers
- Lockers in sets (such as vintage lockers made of metal)
