A slip and fall case filed against the H-E-B grocery chain has been completed with a final judgment. The suit started back in 2010, when Florence Brown claimed that she was injured in a puddle of water on the floor of the grocery store. The final judgment, issued in late spring, states that the plaintiff may recover nothing from the defendant. Slip and fall cases can be extremely complex and challenging to try, which is why it’s critical to hire a skilled personal injury attorney. In order to try a slip and fall case, an attorney and the plaintiff must be able to demonstrate that the owner of the business or organization was negligent in failing to warn customers of any potential danger. If there are puddles or other obstructions that could cause an individual to fall and hurt themselves, it’s the responsibility of the company or organization to notify customers in some way, which is usually done with appropriate signage. Unfortunately, many slip and fall cases still happen across the country because victims are not able to see the danger until it’s too late. Slip and falls can cause serious injuries with long recovery periods, like fractured or broken bones, including hips. These injuries can alter the life of the victim in a matter of moments, presenting a variety of challenges that can even last over the course of a lifetime. Since there are so many factors involved in slip and fall cases, it’s vital to hire an attorney who knows how to try these cases effectively. Developing an argument about negligence can be difficult, although experienced attorneys will be able to lay out a compelling case regarding your injuries.
