$450,000 Settlement for Injured Supermarket Worker


We obtained a settlement of $450,000 for an injured supermarket worker.

The client sustained lumbar herniated discs (no surgery) when shelving fell on him in his store.

The store was undergoing a renovation.  A pallet of end caps was delivered to the loading dock.  End caps are installed at the end of aisle shelves, and they are tall and heavy.  They were supposed to be wrapped, but someone unwrapped them allowing the bunch to become unstable. 

While waiting for the freight elevator, the  end caps fell upon the unsuspecting worker, one at a time, similar to falling dominoes.

Our case was against the general contractor.  The worker collected workers’ compensation benefits from his employer, the supermarket. 

If you have been injured in a work  accident,  please feel free to call me for a free consultation at 800-581-1434 or write to letters@seitelman.com

Prior case results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
