TAMPA – A Walmart shopper claims he was injured in a store when he slipped because of a substance on the floor.
Christopher Hill filed a complaint on Dec. 23 in the 13th Judicial Circuit Court - Hillsborough County against Wal-Mart Stores East LP alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 18, 2015, he was shopping at defendant's store when he slipped in a foreign substance on the floor and fell. As a result, he alleges he suffered bodily injury, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expenses of hospitalization and nursing care, loss of earnings, loss of ability to earn money, and aggravation of a previously existing condition.
The plaintiff holds Wal-Mart Stores East LP responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to make timely and periodic inspections of its store and its premises, and failed to warn plaintiff of an inherently dangerous condition and/or concealed peril.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages against the defendant. He is represented by Stephen H. Haskins of The Law Office of Lucas/Magazine in New Port Richey.
