HOUSTON – A FedEx Ground independent contractor alleges he was injured making a delivery to a Magnolia grocery store because of a hidden safety barricade.
Paul Chiorean filed a complaint on May 11 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Kroger Texas LP and The Kroger Co. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 3, 2016, he was making a delivery to the Kroger store at 6616 FM 1488, Magnolia and was injured when he tripped over a safety barricade that was concealed. He alleges suffered severe physical injuries resulting in physical pain and suffering, disfigurement, lost wages and medical expenses as a result of the incident.
