Overview of Falling Merchandise Cases

Merchants know falling merchandise presents dangerous risks to unwary customers, and courts are holding them accountable.


During the past decade, thousands of people have been injured, some killed, by falling merchandise while shopping in retail warehouses. From doors, hot water heaters, and televisions to pet supplies, houseware goods, and toys, merchandise is falling off high shelves and causing injuries to customers at an alarming rate. In one case handled by Sam Harding Law Firm in Las Vegas, Nevada, a roll of bamboo fencing fell striking a person in the head. This person sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and a seven figure settlement was obtained for the minor Traumatic Brain Injury which he sustained. Remember minor Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) does not mean “minor” injury.

Since 1987, about 30,000 falling merchandise incidents resulting in injuries to customers have occurred at Wal Mart. During a recent 18 month period, 68 customers sued Home Depot for injuries sustained from falling merchandise. Other companies operating a retail warehouse business include Lowe's, Kmart, Toys'R' Us, PetsMart, Costco, Sam's Club, and Staples. The retail warehouse business exploded during the 1990s and shows no signs of slowing down.

In 1962, the first Wal Mart and Kmart stores opened, and these merchants were about to "hit" the consumer in a big way. These stores operated on the formula that it was more efficient, less expensive, and more profitable to warehouse as much merchandise as possible on the sales floor, rather than in off site warehouses or backroom storage areas. High stacking of merchandise was born, and a profitable business strategy at the expense of customer safety was created.
