A man who claims he was injured in a slip and fall accident on water near a restroom in a Wal-Mart is seeking over $50,000 in damages. According to the lawsuit, Timothy Smith claims that on April 17, Wal-Mart allowed a certain amount of water to accumulate around the men’s restroom causing him to slip and fall.
The suit claims that the store failed to use reasonable care to avoid the infliction of injury or distress on its customers and the public at large. The claim asserts that Wal-Mart negligently failed to inspect the area where the water accumulated, failed to warn of water, failed to inspect the men’s restroom which allowed water to accumulate and negligently allowed water to accumulate in the area near the men’s restroom and the area Smith had to use.
Smith claims the fall made him sick, sore, lame, disabled and disordered due to the extensive injuries he suffered to his head, fingers, hip, neck, and back. His injuries also caused him to experience pain and suffering and to sustain medical expenses.
