Waiting on a Slip-and-Fall Case? USClaims Can HelpNovember 12, 2015
When it happened, things had been going fairly well for “Dana” (not a real person) in her recovery from back surgery. It wasn’t easy, of course. She still experienced some pain every day, and she had had to be off her feet for two weeks longer than her doctors had expected. Then there were the grueling physical therapy sessions three times a week.
But life was returning to something approaching normal, and Dana couldn’t believe how excited she was to do something she’d once considered completely routine and ordinary: drive to the supermarket and shop for groceries. Walking up and down the aisles, Dana felt newly freed from captivity. After selecting some nice-looking steaks for her family’s dinner, she put them in her cart, and continued past the deli counter. That’s when the world flipped upside down.
A few minutes before Dana arrived in the deli area, the supermarket’s janitorial service had removed rubberized mats in preparation to clean that section of the floor. The exposed flooring was wet, but the janitorial workers had left the area without putting out the yellow “wet floor” signs to warn customers away from walking there.
Dana’s feet slipped out from under her. As her shopping cart rolled away, she crashed to the hard floor. She broke her coccyx, reinjured the surgically repaired areas of her back, and is now in a wheelchair while she awaits further surgery.
At her attorney’s advice, she filed suit against the supermarket. It, in turn, sued its cleaning service, which then sued the subcontractor whose staff had improperly handled the cleaning procedure at the store on the evening of Dana’s accident. It was going to be months, if not a year or more, before Dana saw any money from any possible settlement.
Knowing that Dana’s short-term disability payments had run out, and that the reduced payments of long-term disability were not enough to make ends meet, Dana’s attorney told her to call USClaims.
