Two Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Home Improvement Store

For one woman and a young child, their future has changed forever in the aisle of a local home improvement store.

After a trip to Menards turned fatal for a Michigan man last month, his wife has filed two lawsuits against the home improvement store – one is a wrongful death lawsuit; the other is for emotional anguish suffered by witnessing her husband’s death – alleging negligence by the retailer. The suit alleges that while the 38-year-old Clinton Township man and his wife were shopping at a local Menards, a wooden pallet holding 600 pounds of ceramic tile fell about 15 feet from an upper storage shelf and hit the man in the head. He was transported to a local hospital where he died from injuries. Besides his wife, the man leaves behind a five-year-old son.

Police said that about 15 to 20 minutes prior to the fatal accident, employees were placing pallets of materials and goods up on the storage racks using a forklift or high-lo. That part of the aisle was open to the public when the couple came through and employees had moved to another area. The complaints allege the company, through its employees, failed to prevent or protect against the injuries caused by the improper placement of the pallet containing the tile.
