Slip-and-fall accidents: Lawsuit filed against Walmart

There are many people who visit the state of New Jersey to take advantage of the various entertainment, shopping and dining opportunities available here. There are multitude of world-class stores and businesses here that are not found in other areas of the country. Customer service is always a main focus, so owners and employees of these public establishments go to great lengths to welcome customers with an inviting and safe environment. Sometimes, however, potential hazards such as foreign objects or wet floors can be missed. This can result in slip-and-fall accidents.

A woman in another state claims that water on the floor of a Walmart store caused her to fall, and she has filed a lawsuit. The woman said she visited the store to do some shopping and entered through the automatic double-doors at the main entrance. Allegedly, she encountered rainwater that had accumulated on the floor in the vestibule, which caused her to slip and fall.

The lawsuit claimed that the woman suffered serious injuries due to her fall, which included a fracture of her right arm. The woman alleged that she had to have surgery to treat her injuries. The plaintiff accuses the store of negligence over claims that the business allowed water to accumulate on the floor and failed to maintain a safe environment. 

Fortunately, there are laws in the state of New Jersey that require the owners and operators of public establishments to provide a safe environment for all those who legally visit. Those who have been injured due to negligence in slip-and-fall accidents could benefit from discussions with a legal representative. If negligence is proved, a successful claim could result in compensation to help victims with any financial losses.
