MINOT, N.D. — A jury awarded more than $35,000 Thursday to a woman who fell over a flatbed cart at Menards in Minot six years ago and cracked eight of her teeth.

The jury on Aug. 29 found that Menards must pay Darlene Jean Johnson $13,196 in past economic damages, $13,196 in future economic damages, and $10,000 in past noneconomic damages, plus 3% a year in interest for each year since the accident.

According to the complaint in the case, Johnson shopped at Menards in May 2013. She stopped at the customer service desk to ask about exchanging an item. As Johnson turned to leave a temporary customer service station, she was stopped by a flatbed cart that had been left in the walking area. Johnson's shin hit the edge of the cart and she fell face forward onto the cart, damaging eight of her teeth. She needed dental work such as root canals, bridges, posts, and crowns on the damaged teeth.

The jury found that Menards was completely at fault and Johnson had no responsibility for the accident.
