Walmart's alleged dangerous property conditions cause fall

A man in a recent out-of-state case suffered injuries at a Walmart store. The accident reportedly happened due to dangerous property conditions at the store. If a person in West Virginia is injured due to a property owner's failure to keep up the property, he or she has the right to take legal action.

In this recent case, the plaintiff claimed that he was inside the supercenter one day and suddenly lost his footing and fell. The accident occurred in the store's lawn and garden area. He alleged that the fall caused injuries to his body.

The man asserted that he has suffered pain and will continue to experience pain as well as accrue medical expenses as a result of the fall. He has accused Walmart of negligently allowing and permitting the hazardous condition on its premises. As part of his lawsuit, he is seeking a jury trial and is pursuing damages totaling no more than $75,000.

Business owners in the state of West Virginia are expected to maintain their properties in safe conditions, and if they end up having dangerous property conditions that lead to customer injuries, they may be held liable through the civil court system. A person who is injured at a store due to the owner's failure to exercise a reasonable degree of care may choose to file a premises liability claim seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages sustained in the incident. Damages awarded in a case that is fought victoriously may be helpful for covering medical bills and other related costs.
