HUNTINGTON — A shopper is suing a grocery store operator/owner, citing alleged premises liability.
Joyce L. Martin filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against ALDI Inc. (Maryland), ALDI Inc. (Ohio), and ALDI Inc. (Pennsylvania) alleging that they negligently allowed a slick substance to leak on the floor in its premises.
According to the complaint, on Nov. 15, 2016, Martin was at an ALDI grocery store in Cabell County when she slipped and fell due to a slick substance on the floor. She suffered physical injuries and incurred medical bills for her treatment and will continue to incur bills as well as other expenses. The plaintiff holds ALDI Inc. (Maryland), ALDI Inc. (Ohio), and ALDI Inc. (Pennsylvania) responsible because Aldi's employees allegedly had knowledge of the premises condition prior to plaintiff's slip and fall.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages including compensatory, punitive and exemplary damages; civil penalties; attorney's fees and costs; pre- and post-judgment interests; and other further relief the court may find just. She is represented by Scott S. Legal and C. Edward Amos of The Segal Law Firm in Charleston.
