ORLANDO — A husband and wife are suing Wal-Mart, alleging loss of consortium and negligence in causing injuries to the wife.
Christina and Kevin Young filed a complaint Nov. 21 in Orange County Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores East LP and an unidentified store manager, alleging failure to provide a safe environment for business invitees.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 14, 2014, while Christina Young was walking along the automotive section of the Wal-Mart at 11250 E. Colonial Drive, Orlando, she slipped and fell to the ground due to a slippery substance that was allowed to remain on the floor. As a result, Young says she sustained injuries on her body and extremities, incurred medical expenses, physical handicap, impaired working ability, and great emotional distress, while her husband suffered the loss of his wife's services, consortium, care and comfort.
The plaintiffs allege Wal-Mart and the store manager failed to warn invitees of the dangerous condition of its premises, failed to properly maintain and inspect the property and failed to prevent the existence of or remedy a hazardous condition.
The Youngs seek trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, plus costs and interest. They are represented by attorneys Gary J. Boynton of Winter Park and Oniell C. Martinez of Morgan, White-Davis & Martinez PA in Winter Park.
