Pennsylvania Man Files Premises Liability Suit Against Kroger

July 30, 2015

A Pennsylvania resident recently sued a grocery chain in another state after claiming to have been injured on the store’s property. The national chain, The Kroger Co., is accused of premises negligence. The injury accident occurred last year, according to the man’s premises liability lawsuit.

The man said he was at a Kroger store one day and suddenly fell as a result of hazardous conditions at the store. He said the company was careless in that it failed to inspect its premises, which include the parking lot and sidewalk. The company also reportedly did not maintain its property in a safe manner.

The man further said that the store did not correct the hazardous condition that caused him to become injured, nor did it warn him or other patrons about the hazard. He said the accident caused him to suffer disabling and severe injuries as well as pain and suffering and mental anguish. He also claimed medical expenses, loss of his ability to function, loss of the enjoyment of life, inconvenience and aggravation.

The Pennsylvania man is seeking damages as well as attorney fees and other costs as part of his premises liability suit. Any person who is injured on a business’s property because the business failed to maintain it has the right to take legal action against the company. A preponderance of the evidence is necessary to establish the company’s liability for those injuries. Only once liability has been established in a manner that pleases the court will the plaintiff’s damage claims be determined.
