Slip, fall leads to suit against PA Wal-Mart
While checking out at the Port Arthur Wal-Mart, Charlotte Green slipped and fell in a puddle of water. She claims she was injured and has filed suit against the mega center.
Green's personal injury lawsuit was filed with the Jefferson County District Court on Oct. 25.
According to her petition, on June 17, 2006, Green was shopping at the Wal-Mart located at 8585 Memorial Boulevard, Port Arthur, "when she slipped in a large puddle of water at the register," causing her to fall and injure herself.
The suit asserts Wal-Mart and its employees were negligent for failing to remedy the dangerous condition.
"Defendant breached said duty by failing to remove the waterÃ¯Â¿Â½and warn patrons of the hazards," the suit said. "Defendant negligently allowed such condition to continue."
The suit does not state the nature of Green's alleged injury.
She is suing for past and future medical expenses, physical pain, mental anguish and impairment.
Green is represented by David Dies of the Dies, Hart & Parkhurst law firm.
Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th Judicial District, has been assigned to the case.
Case No. D180-591
