By Philip Gonzales | Feb 13, 2019

CLEARWATER — A Pinellas County customer is suing a Save-A-Lot grocery store operator in Gulfport, alleging negligence and premises liability led to the plaintiff falling.

Bernard Thinn filed a complaint Jan. 29 in Pinellas County Circuit Court against Moran Foods LLC, doing business as Save-A-Lot, alleging failure to provide a reasonably safe environment.

According to the complaint, on Nov. 23, 2016, Thinn was lawfully in the Save-A-Lot’s premises in Gulfport when he slipped on a foreign food and/or liquid substance on the floor and fell. The suit says Thinn sustained severe, grievous and permanent injuries, pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of earnings. 

The plaintiff alleges Save-A-Lot negligently allowed liquids and/or other substances to accumulate on the floor and failed to provide adequate warning of the dangerous condition that existed at the time of the incident.

Thinn seeks trial by jury, damages that exceed $15,000, exclusive of interest and court costs. He is represented by attorney Michael Valen of Rubenstein Law PA in Miami.
