    Re: Injured by falling bottle in store

    I wish to submit that in your case, the reason for the fall of the bottle of Pepsi was that it was not properly stacked. It is the duty of the Store to display the items in a proper manner so that the customers visiting the Store do not get injured by the items displayed for sale. The Store is liable for your injury under legal theory called “premises liability”. The Store has a duty to keep its premises safe for the customers. Recently in Florida in case White v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., 918 So. 2d 357 (Fla. 1st DCA 2005) it was held that even the manager is also liable apart from the Store for the injury.
