Woman claims Wal-Mart Snapple display ‘seriously’ hurt her in DeKalb

Delores McKenzie, like any bottled-tea lover might, reached for a Snapple from a display at a Stone Mountain Wal-Mart.

In a few moments, the display collapsed on her, causing “serious injuries,” according to a lawsuit.

McKenzie filed suit this week in DeKalb County Superior Court, asking for a jury to decide how much she’s owed for the March 30, 2015, incident.

She claims the store and its workers, as well as Snapple’s parent company, caused “dangerous conditions.”

Said conditions resulted from the “negligent erection and maintenance of the Snapple display,” her suit claims.

The suit says her injuries sustained at the store, located at 5935 Memorial Drive, were to her left arm, left hand, fingers and more.

In a statement, Wal-Mart told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "We've yet to receive the complaint, but look forward to defending ourselves in court."
Snapple's parent company, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, couldn't immediately be reached Friday.
