JACKSONVILLE – A costumer at a Navy Exchange alleges that she fell when the display chair she tested collapsed.
Kimberly Kinzig filed a complaint on May 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida Jacksonville Division against United States of America citing negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 12, 2014, while she was shopping at the Navy Exchange at Mayport Naval Station in Jacksonville, she sat on a display chair to test it and the chair collapsed, causing her to fall and sustain serious injuries. The plaintiff holds United States of America responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to warn of the dangerous condition, failed to correct the said dangerous condition and failed to properly assemble the store display chair.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for damages, costs of this suit, prejudgment interest and such other relief as the court may deem just. She is represented by Eric S. Block, Fraz Ahmed and Caitlin O'Donnell of Law Offices of Eric S. Block PLLC in Jacksonville.
