ORLANDO — A woman is suing Wal-Mart Stores East LP d/b/a Walmart Super Center, citing alleged negligence for a store accident in which a stack of tables fell on her arm.

Cristina Colon filed a complaint on March 20 in the Orange County Circuit Court against Wal-Mart alleging that its store at 5991 Goldenrod Road failed to provide a reasonably safe environment for its patrons.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on May 21, 2016, she suffered bodily injury, disability, medical expenses, loss of earnings and aggravation of a previously existing condition resulting from the negligent action of an employee of the defendant as he allowed a stack of tables to fall on plaintiff's arm. The plaintiff holds Wal-Mart responsible because it allegedly failed to exercise reasonable care in the maintenance, inspection, customer service or mode of operation of the premises.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for compensatory damages in excess of $15,000 together with interest and costs. She is represented by Bryan D. Matthews of The Nation Law Firm LLP in Longwood.
