PRINCETON — A couple is suing the corporation
that runs a local grocery chain after the wife allegedly fell and injured herself in one of its stores.
Annette A. and Tony Tabor, filed a lawsuit on Jan. 25 in the Mercer County Court against K-VA-T Food
Stores Inc. for negligence.
According to the complaint, Tabor was a customer at Food
City in Bluefield, which is owned by K-VA-T, on Aug. 30, 2014. During her
visit, Tabor slipped and fell on water and/or ice that accumulated near an ice
machine in the store, the suit states.
She allegedly suffered severe injuries to her knees,
her right shoulder and her back, which required extensive medical treatment. She also claims to have suffered lost wages and other benefits, incurred
substantial medical bills, and experienced numerous other personal traumas.
The plaintiffs demand a jury trial and are seeking a judgment against K-VA-T in an amount that fully and fairly compensates each of
the injuries and damages sustained. They are represented by Lawrence E. Morhous
and W. Blake Belcher of Brewster, Morhous, Cameron, Caruth, Moore, Kersey and
Stafford, PLLC in Bluefield.
