Unfortunately, accidents can happen anywhere. Even in the places we go most often and feel safe. That was the case for one local woman in Tallahassee. Back in 2016, she went to a small grocery to pick up a few things. Unfortunately, she suffered serious injuries due to a slip and fall accident. Mrs. Jenkins, a 47-year-old at the time, fell when she was walking about the store. She claims that because of a leaky ice bin, she slipped on the water that was falling out and fell. She had to undergo three surgeries and now suffers from back, neck, wrist, and shoulder pain. The surgeries included fusing a part of her spine. This was a very serious fall. However, instead of taking responsibility, the grocery store claimed that Mrs. Jenkins could have just been more careful.
The jury seemed to disagree with the grocery store and awarded the victim a total of $1.9 million.
