A woman is suing Walmart, saying she was severely injured while in the company’s South Belt Highway store.
Keslyn Vincent of Auburn, Washington, has filed for damages with the superstore, saying that in July of 2014 she was walking near the children’s clothing and food sections when she slipped in a large puddle of water, according to court documents. According to the suit, an employee saw Vincent walking to the puddle, which was not marked with a wet floor sign, and failed to warn her.
The woman alleges that because of her injuries, she had to seek emergency medical treatment, surgery and physical therapy.
A count for negligence has been filed against two Walmart employees and the company, and a count of premise liability had been filed against the store.
