Walmart sued for negligence after alleged slip-and-fall accident

Californian customers visiting supermarkets, shops and other public places expect to do so without fearing possible injuries. This means that owners and managers of such establishments should make sure that there are no hazards, such as wet surfaces or loose carpets, which can lead to slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents. Warning signs should be used in case of possible hazards. Neglecting to pay attention to possible hazards, or not warning customers, may result in the establishment having to answer to a personal injury claim in a court of law.

In fact, an out-of-state Walmart is currently being sued by a client after a slip-and-fall accident in June of last year. The woman allegedly slipped on a wet surface after water was left on the floor instead of being cleaned up. According to the plaintiff, the fact that the water was not cleaned up constitutes negligence on the side of the store.

The plaintiff is claiming reasonable damages and all appropriate relief from the company. She is also asking the court to require the company to pay all costs, both court costs and attorney fees. The court's ruling is still pending.

California customers, who have suffered serious injuries due to a slip-and-fall accident in supermarkets, shops or other public places may benefit from consulting with a personal injury lawyer. Knowledge of the relevant legislation places a lawyer in the ideal position to evaluate the circumstances surrounding the incident. An objective evaluation will help establish the possibility of filing a lawsuit against the company for damages suffered due to negligence and may result in a financial award for damages.
