MANSFIELD v. LARY.
41090.
JORDAN, Judge.
Action for damages. Waycross City Court. Before Judge Smith.
This was a negligence action brought by the plaintiff to recover damages for injuries sustained by her when she fell while using the facilities of the defendant's self-service, coin-operated laundry. The jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff, and the exception is to the denial of the defendant's motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict. Held:
Accordingly, since a merchant is not an insurer of the safety of his customers and is required by law only to exercise ordinary care to avoid injury to them, Platz v. Kroger Co., 110 Ga. App. 16 (137 SE2d 561), a verdict was demanded for the defendant; and the trial court erred in denying his motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict.
Schreiber & Rozier, C. Edwin Rozier, contra.
Bennett, Pedrick & Bennett, John W. Bennett, for plaintiff in error.
DECIDED JANUARY 27, 1965 -- REHEARING DENIED FEBRUARY 17, 1965.
