PITTSBURGH – A man’s left knee injuries suffered at a Mount Pleasant supermarket were allegedly the result of the store floor’s defective condition, according to his recently-filed lawsuit.
Alan Ferguson of Scottdale filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Jan. 10 versus Giant Eagle, Inc. (doing business as “Mount Pleasant Get Go”), of Mount Pleasant.
On Dec. 4, 2017, the plaintiff claimed he was on the defendant’s premises, when the lawsuit states he was caused to fall by a mat on the floor near the supermarket’s coffee section, resulting in severe, permanent and personal injuries.
Ferguson allegedly sustained serious left knee injuries including a tear, scrapes, lacerations, contusions, and bruising.
The plaintiff claims the defendant failed to exercise proper care over the premises, failed to inspect, monitor, repair or warn of the defective and dangerous condition with the mat on the store floor, in addition to other charges.
For one count of negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $35,000, plus all costs and other relief this Court deems just.
The plaintiff is represented by Marc I. Simon of Simon & Simon, in Pittsburgh.
