Woman injured in 7-Eleven slip and fall accident

A woman alleges that she suffered injuries in a 7-Eleven store in another state. She filed a complaint against the retail chain after suffering the slip-and-fall accident. The woman's claim is that the retail store failed to provide her with a safe environment in which to shop. In New York, as in other states, a retail store is responsible for making sure that its location is safe for consumers and other business invitees.

Reportedly, the woman entered the store in March 2016 in order make a purchase. While in the store, she claims to have slipped on some liquid that employees had failed to clean up before her arrival. She asserts that she suffered serious injuries, for which she seeks legal recourse. The woman has requested a trial by jury.

The woman alleges that the store chain is responsible for those injuries because of the fact that the employees should have either cleaned up the area or had a warning of some kind that the floor was wet. She claims that neither of these was the case, which made the area unsafe for the public. She further alleges that the area where the incident occurred should have been inspected by store employees, but apparently was not.

When businesses fail to provide their customers with a safe place to do business, accidents can happen and injuries may occur. If someone experiences a slip-and-fall accident in New York, he or she has every right to consult with a personal injury attorney. The lawyer can advise the victim as to whether grounds exist for a premises liability lawsuit, and provide assistance in litigating a claim for personal injuries in civil court
