Customer blames Save-A-Lot for slip-and-fall injuries

By Jenie Mallari-Torres | Jan 26, 2019

WINFIELD — A customer is suing a supermarket, citing alleged negligence.

Susan Shaffer filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against Save-A-Lot alleging that it failed to provide a safe environment for its customers.

According to the complaint, Shaffer alleges that on May 27, 2018, she entered the defendant's store in Scott Depot in Putnam County and slipped and fell because water was left on the floor, causing her to suffer injuries to her back, elbow, neck and foot, which required long-term medical treatment, hindered her daily activities and caused her to lose wages. 

The plaintiff holds Save-A-Lot responsible because it allegedly failed to warn customers of the dangerous condition of its premises and failed to timely repair a leak in the ceiling.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for compensatory damages, attorney's fees, costs and other relief the court deems just. She is represented by Michael M. Cary of Cary Law Office PLLC in Charleston.
