For immediate release: Major settlement reached

Melvin L. Hewitt, Jr., Managing Partner of Atlanta-based Isenberg & Hewitt recently announced that, after several years of litigation, Isenberg & Hewitt, along with its co-counsel, Deitch & Rogers, reached a settlement in excess of $2 million after an in-store incident where a fire extinguisher fell on a customer's foot. 

"Our client incurred significant injuries to her foot which resulted in a condition known as RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy) or alternatively as CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome), a painful trauma-related condition that destroys tissue and results in life-altering levels of discomfort and pain which disrupted, and likely will continue to disrupt our client's life for the remainder of her life. We're very pleased to have played a role in her recovery," Hewitt said.

Are you eligible for compensation if you are injured by falling or unsecured merchandise at a retail location?

To best utilize space, many stores stock merchandise on shelving units above your head or, as in this case, failing to properly secure objects to dislodgement. Although this strategy may help minimize product costs, save space or result in short-term convenience to the retailer, the damage caused by a falling product or object could result in serious injuries to an unsuspecting shopper.

Whether you slip on a wet floor or suffer injuries from falling merchandise or objects, you may be eligible to recover damages for a retailer's negligence.
