A woman injured when she was struck by a motorized shopping cart in a suburban Cleveland grocery store has been awarded $1.2 million by a jury.
Cleveland.com reported Barbara Rieger was struck in 2012 by a customer who lost control of a motorized cart at a Giant Eagle store in Brook Park. Rieger’s lawsuit says the impact tossed her 4 feet and caused her to hit her head on a store shelf.
The lawsuit says the then-71-year-old Rieger suffered head and neck injuries.
The complaint alleged Pittsburgh-based Giant Eagle failed to show customers how to properly use the store’s motorized carts.
The newspaper says an attorney defending Giant Eagle in the lawsuit didn’t return a call seeking comment Friday.
