MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Mar 21, 2013) - The Florida injury attorneys at Bernstein & Maryanoff represent clients all over Florida who have been injured because of the negligence of others. The firm represents clients who have been injured in traffic accidents, workplace accidents, those who have been sexually abused and people who have suffered because of nursing home abuse and neglect. The firm hereby announces that it has filed a Florida slip and fall lawsuit against a grocery store after a client was allegedly injured because of a dangerous condition that was present on the premises of the defendant.
Specifically, this Florida personal injury lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of the 16th Judicial Circuit in and for Monroe County, Florida. The case was assigned to the General Jurisdiction Division and it was given a case number of 2012 CA 1192P. The plaintiff named in the lawsuit is an individual female who was allegedly injured while on the premises of the named defendant, which is Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. The case is seeking several different forms of damages.
According to the court documents that are related to the case, the lawsuit arose because the plaintiff was recently on the property of the defendant legally and for the purpose of purchasing groceries. As the plaintiff moved across the property while taking part in this activity, she allegedly slipped, fell and was injured because of liquid that had accumulated on the floor of the defendant grocery store.
The court documents further allege that because of this liquid that was allegedly on the floor and because of the plaintiff's alleged fall because of it, she suffered several different forms of injuries. These injuries included a deep laceration that required stitches to close as well as serious neck and back injuries that will require ongoing medical care.
The court documents put forth the argument that the defendant was negligent in the case and therefore should be liable for damages incurred for medical costs, pain and suffering and other losses and costs that have been incurred. The reason for this argument is that the defendant allegedly either knew or should have known about the liquid on the floor, that the defendant did not either remove that liquid or properly warn others of its presence and that this liquid is what caused the injuries suffered by the plaintiff. The case remains active and pending in the Florida court system.
