On October 3, 2020, our client was injured while visiting the Kroger supermarket in Wood County, Ohio. As she entered the vestibule of the store and walked toward the main interior entrance, a Kroger employee backed into our client, tripping her with their foot and causing her to fall to the ground.
Following the accident, our client was transported to the emergency room for treatment. Our client experienced severe and unnecessary harm due to the employee’s negligence, so Charles E. Boyk Law Offices is pursuing a lawsuit on her behalf.
Assessing Liability and Damages
Kroger has a duty to maintain its premises and keep its customers safe. Additionally, the establishment is responsible for the actions of its employees. Due to the negligence of Kroger and its employee, our client suffered serious injuries, including fractures to her left little finger and left ring finger.
These injuries have caused our client to incur financial losses due to medical treatment. Our client expects these financial losses to continue, as she believes these injuries are permanent.
She also endured great pain, suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress due to the accident. Had the negligent employee shown an appropriate level of care, these damages could have been avoided. As such, we are seeking compensation to cover all our client’s current and future losses.
