A 49 year old man slipped and fell at a local Kroger supermarket and suffered a spinal cord compression and myelopathy at C3-T1and underwent surgery for placement of multiple rods and screws to stabilize his spine.

He continues to suffer from chronic lower back pain, nerve pain in his lower extremities, and a loss of mobility, and he has a 30 percent whole-body impairment. He is now permanently disabled.

The Plaintiff sued the store, alleging that  spilled fruit constituted a hazard on the premises and that the defendant was negligent in failing to discover and remove the spill or guard the area and warn of the danger.
