 Teen drivers are more likely than any other age group to be involved in a car accident and 3 times more are more likely than older drivers to be in a fatal crash. In addition, a recent study found that distracted driving among teens is much more prevalent than previously believed.  #indianalawyer  http://billhurst.com

I find this to be a not uncommon accident! In Rhode Island call #toprhodeislandinjurylawyer +David Slepkow !!
 
Many retail establishments, department stores and wholesale outlets in Rhode island and Providence Plantations store merchandise and equipment above eye level on the sales floor. This provides less expensive and more efficient storage than housing the goods and equipment off-site at a facility. Unfortunately, precariously stacking merchandise high above the floor can cause personal injuries when it falls on customers, guests and employees. These business choices often produce highly efficient, less costly solutions for generating greater profits that are often to the detriment of unsuspecting victims.

A Hazardous Environment in RI necessitating retaining top RI personal injury attorneys

Typical workforce mistakes include placing heavy goods on high shelves in a dangerously unstable position, especially when heavy boxes are placed atop lighter boxes. Some businesses require the use of physical restraints and other safety devices including safety ties and security bars to protect the employee when working in high areas. However, not much is done by Rhode Island department stores and big box establishments to curb the danger and protect customers around stacked merchandise high in the air. Stores have made a corporate decision to put maximum profit over customer saftey and as a result do not post a warning signa or temporary fencing to ward unsuspecting victims of the potential serious risk.

Many individuals suffer serious injuries or death every year from falling merchandise. Sadly, some of these accidents could be avoided if the employee continuously monitored and surveyed various areas inside the store. Their efforts could prevent most safety risks created by workers and other customers moving products, equipment and merchandise throughout the workday.

Common Store Practices in Rhode Island (RI) including Warwick, Cranston, East Greenwich and Seekonk Massachusetts (MA)

Many common dangerous store practices are often viewed as a sign of neglect, carelessness and recklessness of the business owner, property owner, managers, supervisors and employees. These negligent practices some of which are the regular course of business for such entities as Wall Mart, Target, Sears, Home Depot , Lowes, Sams Club etc. include:

• High Stacking – An instant recipe for catastrophe can occur in an instant if a Wall Mart or Home Depot employee stacks merchandise high above a shelf at a height that often reaches upwards of 15 feet from the ground floor. This often creates an unstable condition where employees or customers are required to stretch, climb, use a ladder or reach far above their head to retrieve merchandise.

• Inadequate Warnings – Merchants should be required by law to provide adequate danger warnings of any potential risks of high stacked merchandise, equipment and goods. The company, property owner and management can be held liable if a dangerous shopping aisle is not cordoned off as merchandise, equipment or heavy goods are stocked or removed on high shelves.

• Unsecured Goods – Any good, product or heavy item can become a lethal weapon when stacked high and unsecured. Employees and supervisors should utilize safety ties, fencing, shelf extenders and security bars to provide a safer environment for everyone visiting or working in the establishment.

• Lack of Employee Supervision and Training – The workforce must be properly trained and supervised to ensure that all goods in the store are placed on the shelf, or stored or displayed in a proper manner. Any lack of training can be seen as a sign of neglect of the management staff, which could create a liability problem for the company.

• Dangerous Surrounding Event – Often times merchandise will fall after becoming unstable when other goods or equipment is being moved often adjoining shelf or aisle. Vibrations caused by movement of other merchandise can also cause surrounding items to dislodge and plummet to the ground.

In many of our accident cases some clients are considered undocumented or “illegal” as some would put it. According to the Center for Immigration Studies about half of the immigrants in the United States are undocumented and of those most of them entered the court legally but their Visa has since expired and they have stayed in the United States.   #indianalawyer  http://billhurst.com
