CLEARWATER — A customer is suing Wal-Mart, alleging negligence caused her to fall in the defendant's Clearwater store.
Mary Olsen filed a complaint Dec. 17 in Pinellas County Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores East LP, alleging failure to provide a safe environment for its business invitees.
According to the complaint, on May 21, 2018, while Olsen she was at the Wal-Mart store, 2677 Roosevelt Blvd., Clearwater, she slipped and fell.
The suit says Olsen fell because of the negligence of Wal-Mart employees who allowed water to remain on the floor of the store's premises. Olsen says she sustained bodily injuries, pain and suffering, disability, loss of normal life, inconvenience, impairment, scarring, loss of earnings, aggravation of a physical defect and medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Wal-Mart Stores East created a latent hazard to invitees, failed to regularly maintain and inspect the area, and failed to provide a safe access for its customers.
Olsen seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, plus costs and all other just relief. She is represented by attorney Jodi Leisure of Carey, Leisure & Neal in Clearwater.
