Debris left on floor may cause slip-and-fall accidents

A woman in another state says that she injured herself at a supermarket due to the store's carelessness. She has filed a lawsuit against the store. Consumers in West Virginia who are hurt in slip\-and\-fall accidents as a result of the negligence of a business property owner have the right to take legal action.

In the recent out-of-state case, the plaintiff claims she was at a store belonging to Cermak Fresh Market Inc. All of a sudden, she apparently slipped and ended up falling on an object on the floor. The woman asserts that the object on which she slipped looked like it was chocolate.

The woman alleges that the store and the associated corporate entities are responsible for not warning her about the object that was left on the floor. The store is also accused of not taking sufficient measures to protect consumers from being injured. She is requesting a judgment totaling more than $30,000 as well as court costs.

West Virginia business owners are required to keep their properties reasonably safe for their customers to use. If they fail to do so, they may be financially responsible for any injuries that occur as a result. Victims of slip-and-fall accidents may have grounds to file premises liability claims against the allegedly at-fault business owners, seeking the reimbursement of damages sustained in these accidents. Financial restitution from a successfully litigated case, based upon a proper showing of negligence, might help with addressing medical costs, any loss of wages and other injury-related monetary damages.
