A woman in Pennsylvania is seeking large compensatory damages for deep lacerations and lost time after she cut her hands on a shattered bowl in a Target store. The woman is seeking damages from both Target and the bowl’s manufacturer, claiming that both companies were negligent in allowing a defective and dangerous product enter the flow of commerce, resulting in permanent damage to her hand. The Plaintiff, a nurse, is also suing for lost time, as she has not been able to work during her rehabilitation period.
Ms. Calabrase, the Plaintiff in this case, suffered nerve and bone damage when the shard of the bowl severed the nerves in her hands, causing major damage that will probably be permanent in certain aspects. Ms. Calabrase had to consult a hand surgeon,and underwent surgery to fix the nerve damage caused by the sharp bowl. These types of injuries demonstrate just how serious premises and product liability can be, and how cases vary from slip and falls to serious injuries while shopping.
Large retail stores like Target are responsible for maintaining safe stores and selling safe products to their customers. Injuries like those suffered by the Pennsylvania nurse can affect work and cause permanent damage, disability, and affect every aspect of life.
