WOMAN FALLS DUE TO BUNCHED MAT AT LOCAL GROCERY STORE CAUSING LONG TERM INJURIES

Settlement:


**CONFIDENTIAL**

 

Overview of Case:

The Plaintiff, an elderly woman, walked into a local grocery store and upon entering through the automatic opening door, she tripped on the entrance mat that was bunched up directly where the doors open.  Upon tripping over the mat, she fell and braced herself with her hands, landing primarily on her right wrist and left knee. The floor mat should lay flat to allow patrons to enter without any issue.  At the time of our client's injury, the mat was not flat, thus causing her immediate fall and subsequent injuries. After the fall, she had ongoing pain and required the use of a walker.
