An Oakland, New Jersey woman recently filed a lawsuit against Shoprite after she was severely injured in a slip and fall accident at the Bergen County store in 2014. According to the claim, a 55-year-old woman suffered severe and permanent injuries, both physical and mental pain and torment, and was disabled and disfigured as a result of the accident.
The plaintiff says she slipped on a string bean in the store’s produce section and suffered a violent fall. The lawsuit states that Shoprite was negligent for allowing string beans to fall on the floor and remain there while not providing floor mats or other safety devices. It also alleges that Shoprite was aware of the hazardous conditions, but failed to address them. The plaintiff is seeking compensation for medical expenses and lost wages, as she has been unable to work since the accident.
