Milwaukee Falling Merchandise Lawyers
A Milwaukee falling merchandise lawyer represents victims who have been injured when goods fall on them in a commercial establishment. Often, significant injuries and fatalities do not occur at local mom and pop shops but rather at big super stores such as Walmart, warehouse clubs and home improvement stores where large and heavy merchandise are piled high above the aisles. Owners and managers of such stores have the responsibility to keep shoppers, workers and other visitors safe while they are on their premises.
People Hurt or Killed by Falling Merchandise Should Consult a Milwaukee Falling Merchandise Lawyer
A Wisconsin falling merchandise attorney can help victims who were hurt by falling merchandise, or their survivors, recover damages for their injuries. Typically, a victim has three years to bring a lawsuit against the owner or operator of the premises or store where he or she was hurt. However, it is important to talk to an attorney as soon as possible after you are injured so that your attorney can properly investigate your case and begin fighting for your recovery.
An experienced Milwaukee falling merchandise accident lawyer from the law firm of Pasternak & Zirgibel will meet with you for a free, no obligation consultation. During that meeting, one of our knowledgeable and compassionate Wisconsin falling merchandise attorneys will ask you questions about your accident, your injuries and your recovery. We will explain how a Wisconsin premises liability lawsuit works and your potential damages if you are successful in your claim.
The first step in a falling merchandise lawsuit is to file a complaint against the owner of the building and/or the business that operates in that building alleging that they: (a) had a duty to keep the victim safe; (b) breached that duty by failing to act as a reasonable owner or business would have acted given the circumstances; (c) that the breach of duty caused the victim’s injuries; and that (d) you are entitled to damages as a result.
The defendant(s) will answer your complaint and attempt to explain why the defendant(s) is not responsible for your injuries. Sometimes a defendant will claim that the victim’s own negligence caused his or her injuries. Your Wisconsin falling merchandise accident attorney will defend you against this type of claim.
After the complaint and answer have been filed, both parties will engage in discovery and pretrial motions. The parties may enter settlement negotiations at any time and your Milwaukee falling merchandise accidents lawyer will represent you in such negotiations. If you do not reach a settlement then the case will proceed to trial.
If you successfully reach a settlement or a favorable result at trial then you will be entitled to damages. Damages may include compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost income and pain and suffering.
