Major injuries may stem from slip-and-fall accidents

A consumer in a different state recently asserted that she suffered injuries at Walmart store due to the store's negligence. She filed a lawsuit against Walmart, seeking a judgment for monetary damages. Likewise, people in West Virginia who are injured in slip-and-fall accidents stemming from property owners' carelessness have the right to seek justice through the civil court system.

The woman involved in the recent slip-and-fall accident case asserted that she was walking in Walmart's laundry detergent aisle when the accident happened. She reportedly stepped in wet debris. This allegedly caused the woman to fall, and she ended up bending her knee backward and twisting it.

According to the lawsuit, the accident occurred not long after she had gone through an arthroscopy of the knee that ended up being injured at the store. In her suit, she blamed Walmart for causing her to suffer mental anguish, pain and suffering, and physical impairment. She claimed that Walmart should have prevented the dangerous property conditions that caused her injury or should have warned patrons about the liquid on the floor.

Business properties in West Virginia sometimes present hazards to customers, and customers end up suffering injuries in slip-and-fall accidents as a result, for example. In these situations, the injured parties may have to deal with both the physical harm and the financial harm resulting from their accidents. Fortunately, it is within their rights to file liability claims against the property owners whose negligence caused their harm. A successfully fought suit may result in damages that might help with addressing medical bills, the loss of wages and other losses tied to the dangerous property conditions.
