New York Accidents At "Big Box" Stores
Everyone in New York, and around the country, has shopped at the "big box stores"--Wal-Mart, Costco, Target, BJ's, Lowe's, and Home Depot, to name a few. Heavy merchandise is stacked high up on the shelves, as much as twenty to thirty feet in the air, and the question is: "Are these stores safe?" The answer for many of our personal injury clients in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, White Plains, and the entire lower Hudson Valley is a resounding "No!" Every day around the country, customers at these establishments are being seriously injured by falling merchandise, which has been improperly stacked, carelessly arranged, or placed without the necessary safety cables or other devices to prevent accidents. The ABC News program "20-20" highlighted the dangers of falling merchandise accidents a few years ago.
