A Target shopper says he was injured in the Pinellas Park store because of a dangerous condition.
According to the man’s lawsuit, he suffered physical injuries that required medical care while shopping at Target on April 26, 2016. He is holding Target responsible because the store failed to warn him and other shoppers of the hazardous condition on its premises.
The man is seeking damages of more than $15,000 plus all legal fees.
