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.
