When a person is injured on property belonging to some other person or entity, there is the possibility that the injury was due to negligence by the property owner. Examples of negligence that may cause falling object injury are:
It is, of course, your responsibility to be aware of your situation and move cautiously throughout the store, but even following all precautions, poorly stacked items can fall from the upper shelves and cause serious injury.
Falling objects can cause serious injuries to the head, brain, spine, and neck, broken or fractured bones, depending on where the object hit and how heavy it was. Based on your injuries and other factors, out attorneys may be able to collect damages for:
Serious injuries require serious compensation. Our Brooklyn falling objects accident attorneys will investigate the incident thoroughly and work hard to recover the maximum compensation permitted by law.

Shopping at a superstore or somewhere similar, and having a heavy object or product fall from the shelves above does not fall under that category. This is a situation where you deserve to be compensated for your injuries.
