Macy's agrees to settle slip-and-fall lawsuit

In California and elsewhere, an accident can happen at any moment. Something as simple as a cracked sidewalk can cause a slip\-and\-fall accident that leaves a victim with lifelong suffering. As such, property owners have a certain duty to take reasonable measures to protect those lawfully on their property. A failure to take such measures that then results in an accident can result in a civil lawsuit.

Macy's has recently settled a lawsuit accusing the department store of negligence. The lawsuit claims that a woman was at the store on Feb. 2013. Her foot apparently caught the crumpled edge of a floor mat. As a result, she fell, landing on her face.

The lawsuit alleges that she suffered several serious injuries to her face, elbow, back and leg. In addition to her physical injuries, she claims she also suffers from depression, anxiety and insomnia, among other issues. Because of the amount of money being requested, the lawsuit was moved to federal court. Both parties recently agreed to a settlement, but the terms of that settlement remain confidential.

When those who own or maintain a property fail to meet minimum standards to protect the safety of those on their property, people in California have the option of seeking recompense in civil court. If it can be proved that a person was injured due to such negligence, victims could receive an award to help them with any financial complications stemming from a slip-and-fall accident, for example. An initial consultation with an experienced attorney can help victims and their families fully understand the options available to them.
