A couple has filed a suit in another state against Macy's Department Stores after the woman claims to have fallen in one of the chain's locations. According to the report, she tumbled to the floor because a bead, which was left in the aisle, rolled underneath her foot. The two have made allegations of negligence in the slip\-and\-fall case. Similar cases are heard every day in the state of California.
The complaint states that the woman visited the location with intentions to purchase merchandise in December 2014. During her visit, however, she slipped on a bead, causing her to fall. She alleges that the fall caused her to suffer from constant pain and bodily injury. The plaintiffs insist that she now suffers from a disability and has incurred medical bills from the accident that the store chain should pay.
The husband is also a plaintiff in the case, claiming that he has suffered as well. He contends that he has lost his consort, comforter, and companion. Both plaintiffs state that their losses were directly caused by the failure of the store employees to clean up debris on the floor, including the bead, and that there was no warning sign to alert customers that the area was not safe.
In California, as in other states, when a person suffers injury or loss because of the negligence of another person or business, they may be able to pursue damages in a slip-and-fall case. A personal injury attorney is a good choice for those people to consult with. He or she can advise the victim of the laws and guide him or her in how to proceed.
