Jury Finds Supermarket Not Negligent in Vendor Injury Case

Obtained a defense verdict in a jury trial on behalf of a regional supermarket chain. ​A vendor claimed he was struck by a large swinging door that was extended beyond its limits by a piece of machinery being operated by a store employee. When the machinery cleared the door, the plaintiff claimed the door was caused to snap back and accelerate towards him, causing injury to his left shoulder, neck and back. There was no wage loss, but there was a $25K workers’ compensation lien. The jury deliberated over two hours and came back with a 6-0 verdict, finding no negligence on the part of the grocery store.
