A plaintiff from Long Island, NY has filed suit against a supermarket for permanent injuries she sustained after jars of spaghetti sauce fell off the shelves onto her head, causing neck and spine damage. In her suit, the plaintiff alleges the supermarket was negligent when employees stacked the heavy jars high on the shelves, making them more likely to fall and cause injury to customers. At the time of the accident, the plaintiff was reaching for one of the jars when several of them collapsed, hitting her in the head. She was immediately transported to a local hospital. As a result of the accident, the plaintiff claims she has permanent damage, and still experiences pain in her neck. Medical reports showed the jars caused her to suffer bulging discs in her back and damage to her nerves.
