MEDIA — A customer is suing Fresh Grocer of Upper Darby and 69 Marshall Foods LLC, citing alleged negligence and premises liability.
Wendy Devan filed a complaint June 4 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas, alleging that she was injured on Dec. 18, 2016 when she slipped and fell on a clear, slippery substance on the floor at the defendant's property.
According to the complaint, Devan sustained serious injuries, including a cervical sprain, lumbosacral sprain, a cervical myoligamentous injury and a protrusion.
The plaintiff said she holds Fresh Grocer of Upper Darby and 69 Marshall Foods responsible for her injuries because they negligently polished the floor in a manner that posed a slipping hazard and failed to give notice or warning that the floor was slippery.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment against the defendants in excess of $50,000, plus interest, costs, fees and other just and proper relief. She is represented by Leonard R. Parks and Ramon D. Townsend of Law Office of Parks & Associates PC in Philadelphia.
