DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Broward County woman shopping at T.J. Maxx at 1700 South Federal Highway in Delray Beach says she was critically injured when a vase fell from a shelf and shattered — lacerating skin all over her body.

Jacques Moncur is now suing the TJX Corporation — the company that owns T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. The suit, filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, seeks in excess of the statutory minimum of $30,000, and says T.J. Maxx workers were careless when they placed the vase on a shelf — in an unsecured manner.

“While reaching for a candle on one of the upper shelves, (Jacques Moncur) was truck by a falling vase from the shelf above, which shattered upon impact and caused multiple lacerations to her arms, legs, and hands. (She) did sustain seriously bodily injuries as a result of the incident.”

According to the suit, “The TJX Companies carelessly and negligently (failed) to exercise reasonable care with respect to the installation, maintenance, and/or repair of the goods and shelves located on this premises, (and) failed to conduct reasonable inspections of the premises for the existence of dangerous conditions.”

Moncur, according to the complaint, “was injured in and about her body and extremities…suffered mental pain and suffering… suffered loss of income in the past and will do so in the future…and suffered loss for the capacity for the enjoyment of life.”

TJX, based in Massachusetts, had not responded to the suit through the Palm Beach County Clerk’s Office as of mid-day Wednesday, December 21, 2022. The incident, according to the suit, occurred in 2019. Jacques is represented by the Feinstersheib Law Group in Hallandale Beach.
