By Nicholas Malfitano | Apr 24, 2018


PHILADELPHIA – A woman who allegedly suffered a number of serious injuries after being hit by a roll of plastic bags at a ShopRite supermarket in Philadelphia has filed a lawsuit, claiming the store’s negligence led to that accident.

Renee Zampirri and Louis J. Zampirri Jr. of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on April 9 versus McMenamin Family ShopRite, Inc. (individually and doing business as “McMenamin Family ShopRite, ShopRite of Morrell Park #450), of Philadelphia.

On April 10, 2016, Renee was a customer at the ShopRite supermarket in question in Northeast Philadelphia when, due to the defendant’s alleged negligence, she was caused to be hit by a falling roll of plastic bags, suffering serious injuries in the process. Among the injuries incurred, Renee included those to her head, neck, shoulders, jaw, concussion, post-traumatic headaches and damage to her bones, cells, muscles, tissues and nervous system.

According to the plaintiffs, the defendant allowed the aforementioned dangerous condition to exist, failed to warn customers of the presence of said condition and failed to secure the roll of plastic bags in question.

For counts of negligence and loss of consortium, the plaintiffs are seeking damages, jointly and severally, not in excess of $50,000, plus interest, costs and delay damages.

The plaintiffs are represented by Edward J. Zanine and Adam D. Flager of Flager & Associates, in Trevose.
