Premises liability claim filed against Save-A-Lot

If a store in Pennsylvania features a hazard that causes injuries to a customer, it is within the customer's right to try to hold the store financially responsible for his or her injuries. In one case in another state, a man claimed he suffered injuries while at the supermarket chain store Save-A-Lot. He has thus filed a premises liability lawsuit against the store and the store's supervisor, alleging negligence.

According to the man's lawsuit, the man was at a store and suddenly slipped on a rug. At that point, he fell and then hit his head on a wall. The fall has allegedly caused the man to suffer ongoing health care expenses.

As a result of the slip-and-fall accident, the man has reportedly also experienced pain and suffering. He also claimed to have suffered from emotional pain along with a decreased ability to enjoy his life. As part of his lawsuit, he is seeking a trial by jury and compensatory damages along with litigation costs and interest.

When a person in the state of Pennsylvania is injured at a business because of the business owner's negligence, the injured party has the right to file a premises liability claim against the property owner. Liability has to be established according to the standards of the civil court before claims for monetary damages will be determined. Although a monetary award may not be able to reverse the events leading to a property-related accident stemming from another party's carelessness, it may help to provide closure.
