According to the website PennRecord.com, a site that highlights many PA lawsuits, a case was recently settled in the Philly area regarding a slip and fall incident in Macy’s. Within the article, it states that a woman was injured at a Macy’s department store after tripping and falling on a rubber-edged floor mat near the entrance/exit area of the store. As a result of her fall, she sustained serious facial, arm, back, and leg injuries. The long-term effects of her fall also included secondary issues including insomnia, depression, and anxiety. The case was settled outside of court for an undisclosed amount.
Slip and fall injuries may result from improper care or maintenance of indoor and outdoor facilities, like floors, sidewalks, driveways, and/or steps. Owners may not promptly shovel their sidewalks, pour rock salt on their steps, or fail to perform other types of common and expected interior and exterior maintenance measures. If an injury occurs due to the improper maintenance of such areas, the owners of the property may be liable for the injury.
