Cabinets tip over and serious injuries ensue
Tall storage cabinets and lateral file drawers need to be securely anchored
to the wall or they can overturn onto an adult or child when loaded with
weight. These types of cabinets are found in both commercial and home
offices. Without proper attachment, fully loaded and extended upper cabinet
drawers can fall forward and onto someone. It happens more often than
you might think.
Mike Panish, Cabinetry and Architectural Millwork Expert Witness, has worked
extensively in medical facilities to meet the strict and specific anchoring
requirements of California’s OSHPD (Offices of Statewide Health
and Planning Development) codes. Mike has been the retained expert witness
for cabinet and millwork personal injury and defect cases across the country,
working for both plaintiff and defense to determine causation and offer
his forensic analysis of the claim.
