The Spring area Walmart has been sued by a woman who claims that she was injured because of negligence. The lawsuit alleges that, on August 22, 2010, the woman suffered a slip and fall while she was shopping, according to reporting in Ultimate Spring.
What the woman slipped on is not specified in the lawsuit. The lawsuit, however, alleges that the slip and fall could've been completely prevented it the floor had been cleaned or if shoppers have been warned.
A wet floor with no sign can present a serious hazard to anybody in a retail establishment or any other type of establishment. In fact, if people are warned about the hazards presented to them by a wet floor, it's very easy to not even notice that the floor is slippery and to walk on the surface, risking injury or worse. Slip and fall accidents can be deadly to people, particularly people who are older and who may not be in good condition physically.
