Woman files suit against Walmart after tearing rotator cuff

Though it may not seem to be a hazardous place, the store -- be it a grocer, a retailer or otherwise -- may have danger lurking around every corner, holding the potential to hurt its customers without warning. Many people have suffered injuries while shopping for food or other goods in Pennsylvania and it is often a wet floor that is to blame, especially when it is unmarked. This is exactly what happened to a woman when she was shopping at a Walmart store. Her slip and fall incident caused her to suffer a very serious injury and has forced her to file a liability claim against the retail giant because she is now permanently disabled from the fall.

According to the lawsuit, the woman tore her rotator cuff on the premises of Walmart. She filed a suit against the company on May 2 of this year and has accused the company of many detriments including the following: failing to maintain property so as to render it safe for customers, allowing water to remain on the floor in an area highly traveled by customers, failing to warn customers of danger and allowing a hazard to exist on the premises.

Her injury reportedly occurred when she was visiting the paint aisle of the facility. A substance had been spilled on the floor and had not been cleaned up. The claim says the woman slipped on this substance and reached out for a shopping cart as she fell. She fell on her right shoulder and reportedly tore her rotator cuff during the process. This can be a very severe injury and it has caused the woman to suffer serious consequences. She is seeking an unspecified amount of damages for inconvenience, loss of wages, impairment of earning capacity, permanent disabilities, mental pain and suffering, physical pain and suffering as well as personal injuries, medical expenses and mental anguish. If you have been seriously injured on the premises of a company, you may be able to file a similar suit once you speak with an attorney.
