MEDIA — A customer is suing department store operators Kmart Corp., Sears Holding Corp. and Kmart Clifton Heights #7293, claiming insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
Lisa Richardson filed a complaint June 7 in Delaware County Court of Common Pleas, alleging that the defendants breached their duties to ensure that the store premises did not present any danger to their customers.
According to the complaint, Richardson was injured on June 7, 2016 when an employee of the defendants allegedly let go of and dropped multiple chairs that were being loaded into her vehicle.
Richardson said she suffered severe and permanent injuries to her foot and ankle and physical and emotional pain and lost earnings and endured other economic losses.
The plaintiff said she holds the defendants liable because they allegedly failed to protect their customers from being injured and failed to exercise due care in operating their business.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment in an amount greater than $50,000, plus costs, interest and all other relief that the law may provide. She is represented by Jimmy Chong of The Chong Law Firm in Lansdale.
