ORLANDO — An Orlando woman is suing a Save-A-Lot grocery store owner, alleging negligence caused her to fall and suffer injuries.
Samantha Martinez filed a complaint Jan. 25 in Orange County Circuit Court against Moran Foods LLC, doing business as Save-A-Lot, alleging the grocery store owner failed to provide a safe and secure environment.
According to the complaint, on Nov. 5, 2016, Martinez was on the Save-A-Lot premises at 4075 Goldenrod Road, Orlando. The suit says Martinez slipped on a transitory substance, falling forcefully to the ground.
Martinez says she sustained severe bodily injures, resulting in pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of earnings and aggravation of previous existing conditions.
The plaintiff alleges Save-A-Lot failed to adequately warn her of the danger of the transitory substance on the floor and failed to maintain or inspect the floor.
Martinez seeks trial by jury, damages in excess of $15,000, plus interest and court costs. She is represented by attorneys Jason P. Herman and Jason Grundorf of Dan Newlin & Partners in Orlando.
