Widow files lawsuit after fatal slip-and-fall accident

Some people may easily dismiss the potential harm a certain type of accident can cause. For example, it is often easy to overlook the sometimes major injuries that a person in California and across the country can suffer in a slip-and-fall accident. Unfortunately, a business's failure to maintain its property can have significant ramifications.

In fact, a woman in another state recently filed a lawsuit against Walmart. She claims that the business's negligence ultimately led to her husband's death. According to court papers, a 67-year-old man parked his vehicle at Walmart's service center in May. She claims that as he stepped out of his vehicle, he tripped over a defect in the concrete on the floor, causing him to fall.

The man reportedly suffered several injuries in the fall, including fractured ribs, a broken wrist, contusions, abrasions and blood clots. He died approximately a week later, allegedly as a result of injuries suffered in the fall. The woman is seeking more than $25,000 in damages. The lawsuit, originally filed in circuit court, was recently moved to a federal court because Walmart is a national business.

Businesses and other property owners have a responsibility to maintain a property. Failure to do so can have significant results, especially if it results in a slip-and-fall accident. What some people in California may view as a "simple" fall can ultimately have severe consequences, as this incident appears to demonstrate. Often, victims of negligent property owners choose to seek recompense by taking legal action.
