PHILADELPHIA – A woman who allegedly suffered injuries to her right hand after an accident involving a falling cable at a ShopRite supermarket in Philadelphia has launched legal action, claiming a dangerous condition present in the store led to that same accident.

Dolores Plowden of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on March 13 versus ShopRite of Fox Street, Alarm Service Company of America, Inc. (doing business as “Alarm Service Company of America”) and Darrell Jackson (doing business as “Kapitol Security Systems” and “Kapitol, LLC”), also all of Philadelphia.

On March 23, 2016, plaintiff was a customer at the ShopRite supermarket in question when, due to the defendant’s alleged negligence, the plaintiff was caused to be hit by a cable/cord that was dropped by a person on a ladder on the premises and subsequently fell, seriously injuring her right hand.

Prior to the plaintiff’s fall, the defendant did not adequately inspect the premises to ensure safe conditions for those lawfully on said premises, the suit says.

For counts of negligence against each individual defendant, the plaintiff is seeking compensatory damages not in excess of $50,000, plus interest, costs and such other relief as the Court deems appropriate.

The plaintiff is represented by Edward M. Grant of Lowenthal & Abrams, in Bala Cynwyd.
