Texas Woman Blames Walmart for Slip and Fall Injuries

Shopping for groceries can be a hassle for the average American. One thing that rarely crosses our minds is the risk of suffering injury while collecting our goods. A woman in Texas has found herself in the unfortunate situation of physical recovery after allegedly suffering an injury at a large retail chain.

The Walmart Corporation is facing a lawsuit after the woman claimed she was injured after having slipped and fallen at a Galveston location on March 13th. She alleges her fall occurred when she slipped on a puddle of water as she approached a cash register. The plaintiff is claiming the store’s negligence in maintaining a safe environment was the cause. She is seeking between $200,000 and $1 million in compensation.

Poor Maintenance

The store’s failure to properly maintain its floors placed innocent customers in harm’s way, according to Johnson. Store property managers are responsible for upholding a safe shopping or work environment for customers and employees. Any hazards, such as puddles of water, which could result in injury, should not be neglected. When property owners do not address these hazards in a timely manner, the business could be held liable if a customer alleges that injury has resulted due to said hazards.
