I was just injured at Home Depot and told 2 employees about it and instead of offering assistance they did nothing. I asked for help getting and cutting a 3/4" sheet of MDF and the employee walked to the saw, and told me to go down 1 isles and get the sheet of MDF. The sheet was much heavier than I expected and when removed from the rack it fell on my foot. I knew it was bad instantly but thought that maybe it was like a stubbed tow and the pain would just go away. I proceeded to try to drag the product towards the saw while the employee stood there and watched me limo and struggle. I finally got it to the saw and the employee attempted to lift the 4x8 sheet of MDF and was unable to by himself. I was standing off to the side in very apparent pain. He looked at me and said, "wow, this stuff is really heavy! Can you give me a hand getting it up here?" I agreed and helped him. He cut the pieces and walked away, leaving me to carry them up to the register and pay. I got home and took my show off to find it puddled in blood and I am now going to the emergency room to have it x-rayed and potentially stitched. I just called and reported the incident to Home Depot and they informed me that their insurance company will be contacting me on either Monday or Tuesday of next week.
