Slip, Trip and Fall on Floors
By Joe Nichols November 8, 2021
Americans spend about $50 billion per year on medical expenses and loss of work from falling on floors.
This week, “Business Week” magazine relates the story of Amber Morris, who walked into a Costco store , slipped and hit her right knee on the floor with such force that she dislocated her kneecap. Her fiancé assisted her, took a photo of the grease on the floor, (caused by rotisserie chicken grease coating the floor where she fell) and brought her to the hospital. She went in for surgery and never came out. At age 39, during emergency surgery for the knee, she developed a blood clot in her heart and died.
According to “Bloomberg Law” 60% of all lawsuits against Walmart is due to people who have claimed to fallen in their stores and assert that there was some type of obstruction, depression or substance on the floor that caused them to fall.
