ShopRite customer sues, claims she was injured by a roll of plastic bags; Arbitration hearing scheduled

By Nicholas Malfitano | Sep 6, 2018


PHILADELPHIA – An arbitration session has been slated in the matter of 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.

In April, it was determined that an arbiter will oversee a hearing in the lawsuit on Jan. 17, 2019, at the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas Arbitration Center, located on JFK Boulevard in Philadelphia.

Renee Zampirri and Louis J. Zampirri Jr. of Philadelphia first 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, she claims. 

Among the alleged 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.

The defendant has not yet secured legal counsel, according to court records.
