Slip-and-fall accidents can cause severe, costly injuries

Many people worry about falling, and for good reason. Slip-and-fall accidents involving a hard surface can have serious, lasting health consequences. Residents of Tennessee can, of course, take precautions in their own homes to ensure the premises are safe, but what about when they are crossing public parking lots to get to stores or restaurants?

Premises liability means that owners of public establishments are responsible for maintaining safe environments for their patrons, and in another state, a woman has just filed such a lawsuit against the international supermarket chain Aldi. The woman is suing the store for alleged negligence that, she said, resulted in injuries. She recently filed a complaint that alleged failure to provide a safe environment for shoppers.

The plaintiff claims that, in Sept. 2105, she was shopping at an Aldi when, due to the store's negligence, she slipped and fell in a puddle of liquid, presumably water, that had been left on the floor. Her fall allegedly resulted in injury and pain and suffering, with disfigurement and disability, as well as mental anguish and loss of earnings. She also claims that it aggravating a pre-existing health condition.

The lawsuit alleges that Aldi had a duty to take reasonable care to maintain its premises in a safe condition, that this duty included keeping the floor free from slippery liquids, and that Aldi failed to uphold this duty. For her alleged pain and suffering and other complaints, the plaintiff is seeking judgment in excess of $15,000. The injuries that result from slip\-and\-fall accidents may be quite severe and even permanent, and often require costly medical treatments, sometimes on an ongoing basis. For this reason and others, residents of Tennessee who have suffered similarly due to a property owner or manager's negligence may wish to explore options for seeking just compensation with a local attorney in the Clarksville area.
