PITTSBURGH – A woman allegedly severely injured in the produce section of a West Mifflin Walmart store has initiated legal action against the retail giant in state court to recover damages.
Eileen Clark of McKeesport filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 16 versus Walmart Stores East, L.P., of West Mifflin.
On Oct. 21, 2017, Clark alleges she was shopping at the Walmart in West Mifflin when she came into contact with “a liquid substance which was located at or near the produce section, creating a dangerous condition on the premises, causing serious and permanent personal injuries.”
Clark supposedly sustained right knee injuries in the fall, including a fracture, plus scrapes, lacerations, contusions and bruising.
Clark claims the defendant failed to provide sufficient warning as to the reasonably-foreseeable defects and dangerous nature of the premises, failed to inspect, monitor, repair or warn of the defective condition and failed to exercise proper care, custody and control over the aforesaid premises, in addition to other charges.
For one count of negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $35,000, plus all costs and other relief this Court deems just.
The plaintiff is represented by Marc I. Simon of Simon & Simon, in Pittsburgh.
