New Orleans woman injured in supermarket slip-and-fall accident

Most Louisiana residents do not think they will encounter dangerous conditions when they enter the property of others. Unfortunately, the negligence and carelessness of some property owners can lead to such situations. Even more so, when visitors, patrons and customers enter these properties and interact with a dangerous condition, it is likely that they will suffer serious injuries and damages.

This is what happened recently to a New Orleans woman. According to recent reports, this woman was injured in a supermarket, and due to these injuries, she has filed a civil action alleging negligence.

The complaint filed indicated that she was at Rouse's Supermarket located in New Orleans when she slipped and fell due to a wet substance left on the floor. This slip-and-fall accident led to injuries, and the injured woman claims that the negligence of the supermarket caused her fall. The store failed to clean up the wet substance or warn customers of the dangers in the area of the store; therefore, she is seeking reasonable damages in a premises liability suit.

When customers are injured in a slip-and-fall incident, it is possible to prove negligence of the property owner. This is commonly down by collecting evidence that proves that the owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition the caused the injury.

Those injured by the dangerous conditions of a store or the property of another should understand that they have rights and the ability to recover recourses. An injured individual could seek compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages and other damages.
