May 28, 2015 - 8:31 AM

KAMLOOPS - A woman wants financial restitution after tripping and falling at a local corner store.

Jennifer Mochizuki filed a notice of civil claim in Kamloops Supreme Court earlier this month after she allegedly tripped on a floor mat at the 1790 Tranquille Road 7-Eleven store on October 28, 2014.

“The plaintiff tripped and fell on an uneven floor mat that had been left with its edge rolled underneath the mat in front of the cashier counter,” the document states.

In her claim, Mochizuki described injuries to her knee, neck, left shoulder and soft tissue. She also said she suffers from headaches and difficulty sleeping.

The plaintiff seeks general damages, compensation to make up for loss of past and future income, loss of earning capacity along with past and future care costs.

None of the allegations have been proven in court. A statement of defence hasn't been filed.

A representative from 7-Eleven Canada declined comment.
