While shopping in a BIG BOX home improvement store yesterday a piece of lumber (2X6 approx 30" long) fell seven feet causing head trauma. I was diagnosed with a mild concussion. Have had severe headaches for over 24 hours. The impact did not require sutures. The board was on top of their shelving unit and unseen by me. I was removing weatherstripping from the bin when it fell. One of their employees was within a few feet of me at the time and rendered no assistance. The store management took over twenty minutes to begin an accident (incident) report. i stated that at that time that I was not seeking medical attention, but did reserve the right to do so later. My employer had me go to an Urgent Care center for treatment.
