ORLANDO — An Orange County woman is suing Wal-Mart, alleging negligence created a dangerous condition.
Kenia Alamo of Apopka filed a complaint April 10 in Orange County Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores East, LLP, alleging the defendant owed a duty to exercise reasonable care to warn, reduce, minimize, or eliminate foreseeable risks on its property.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 23, 2017, Alama was shopping at the Wal-Mart supercenter on South Orange Blossom Trail in Apopka. The suit says Alama slipped and fell on a transitory substance, appearing to be water, suffering serious and permanent injuries to her right hip, buttocks, lower back and left knee.
As a result, Alamo says she has experienced pain, disability, mental anguish and expenses of medical and hospital treatment.
The plaintiff alleges Wal-Mart Stores East failed to warn patrons of the dangerous condition associated with the transitory substance on the floor and failed to correct a dangerous condition they either knew or should have known about.
Alamo seeks trial by jury, damages that exceed $15,000 and all further relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by attorney Axel J. Dumas of The Pendas Law Firm in Orlando.
