Woman awarded over $2M in slip-and-fall accident at Home Goods

A woman has been awarded over 2 million dollars after injuring her foot and hip at a Home Goods store. According to her suit, she was hurt while trying to return a couple of items to the furniture shop. The slip\-and\-fall accident occurred at the store's Fresno, California, location.

The suit states that the 53-year-old woman went to the store in order to return four chairs that she had purchased at an earlier time. One of the employees met her in the parking lot with a flatbed cart to make it easier to transport the merchandise. The chairs became unstable, however, and fell off the cart. At that time, the employee asked the woman to help steady the chairs and walk alongside the cart. When they got to the door of the store, the employee accidentally struck the woman with the cart, and she fell.

As she hit the ground, the woman is said to have suffered severe injury to her right foot and hip. She had to undergo several surgeries and is still in a great deal of pain. The entire incident was caught on the store's video surveillance, which corroborates the victim's version of the events that led up to her injuries. The woman was left on the ground by employees, and her husband had to take her to the emergency room.

Although Home Goods offered the woman a $15,000 settlement, she refused and was awarded $2,073,373.88 in court. Anyone in California who has been injured in a slip-and-fall accident may benefit from consulting with a personal injury attorney. This lawyer can help the victim to determine the best course of action in attempting to recover damages in such cases.
