ORLANDO — A customer who was reportedly injured after she tripped over a shopping cart left in a Walmart aisle has filed a negligence lawsuit against the retail giant.
Linda Massey filed a complaint on April 3 in the Orange Circuit Court against Walmart Stores Inc., dba Walmart Store # 942 in Orlando, alleging the shopping center failed to use due care to maintain its premises in a safe condition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff claims that on Feb. 5, 2016, she visited the defendant's store when she tripped and fell over a cart that was left in the walkway.
As a result of defendant's alleged negligence, she sustained bodily injury, pain and suffering, disability, mental anguish, loss of earnings, and medical expenses.
The plaintiff holds Walmart responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to adequately inspect and maintain the walkway, and failed to correct or warn the plaintiff of the danger of carts in the walkway.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment against defendant for damages in excess of $15,000. Adaryll Lee of Gee & Lee, Attorneys at Law in Orlando represents Massey.
