Retail Store Negligence

Our client was a business invitee at a home improvement store in Fairfax County, Virginia. She chose a heavy, marble sink attached to a vanity top to purchase. An employee of the store placed the sink and vanity top in a normal shopping cart and then pushed the cart to the checkout counter, where our client waited until the cashier was ready. When our client attempted to push the cart forward to the register counter, the cart and box containing the sink and vanity top fell onto her. As a result of the accident, our client suffered a medial meniscus posterior tear to her right knee, right shin hematoma, and pain in her upper trapezius muscle. After retaining an expert on retail store procedures, we filed suit in Fairfax County Circuit Court and were able to settle the case prior to trial for $125,000.
