If you are struck because of a falling object at a store, the store can certainly be held liable. These cases generally arise from two scenarios. Number one is that the stocking procedure has been done improperly.
We also see injuries in display areas where people are setting up displays improperly, and objects fall from them. In the event you are hit because of a falling object in a store, we would look to the store to provide compensation for the injuries because of the negligent stocking or negligent erection of any type of displays.
