Grocery Store Slammed with $2.3 Million Damages in Premises Liability Cover-Up
A Kroger grocery store was slammed in a slip and fall lawsuit for destroying and manipulating key video evidence.
The 49-year-old plaintiff slipped and fell on crushed fruit on the floor of the Kroger store in 2008 sustaining a serious spinal cord injury. He sued the grocery company for negligent maintenance of its premises and the jury returned the $2.3 million verdict after a three day trail in which the Judge sanctioned Kroger and issued an order finding that the store had tampered with video evidence.
