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.
An illustration of shelving end caps
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.
