Woman Loses Her Water-Caused Slip and Fall Lawsuit Against Walgreens

A slip and fall can happen anywhere, and for any number of reasons. One woman recently lost her case with Walgreens after failing to prove that the store was negligent regarding her accident.

During her testimony, she stated that there was water on the floor, which was what caused her to fall. She did admit that she didn’t see it, but that her foot hit something wet. A friend of hers said that she saw water everywhere and took several pictures of the area. However, employees said that they didn’t see the water either.

The problem was that the victim was not able to prove that the store was negligent. The store claimed to not have known that there was water in the area where the woman fell. There was also no way to prove how long it had been there.

As a result, Walgreens’ motion was granted and a Court of Appeals upheld it. This meant the woman received no compensation for her injuries.

A St. Louis personal injury lawyer understands the severity of cases like this one. We know that slips and falls are difficult cases to prove, and the burden of proof lies on the victim.

If you’re injured in a slip and fall, you need the help of an experienced St. Louis personal injury lawyer. Working with someone who knows how to fight for your compensation is ideal in this situation.
