BELLEVILLE – A customer is suing Shop-N-Save, alleging negligence for injuries she says she sustained while on the defendant's premises.
Jocelyn Prince filed the lawsuit Jan. 14 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Shop-N-Save Foods Inc., specifically its Belleville store, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 2, Prince was shopping inside the defendant's store at 4201 N. Belt West in Belleville when she claims she slipped and fell on a substance that had accumulated on the floor of the produce section.
The suit says the defendant's negligence includes failing to maintain its premises in a safe condition, failing to provide safe ingress and egress on the premises, permitting the premises to remain in an unsafe or dangerous condition and failing to place warning signs next to the spill.
The plaintiff alleges this negligence caused her to sustain injuries to her legs and back, spend money for medical care, which she expects to continue into the future, and has led to disability and pain.
Prince seeks more than $50,000, plus court costs. She is represented by attorneys Thomas C. Rich, Kristina D. Cooksey and Michelle M. Rich of Thomas C. Rich PC in Fairview Heights.
