On Monday (2/18), my girlfriend went into a local grocery store here called Acme to buy a few bottles of baby formula, and there was a liquid spilled on the floor in the aisle. It must have been clear, or white, because it wasn't visible without the right angle to catch a glare of light off it. There were no Caution signs placed around it. Anyway, she slipped on the liquid and fell, and got an injury from the fall. She's got recurring pain in her hip since the fall, and she's complaining of a pain in her neck. The neck pain may be a re-aggravation of a nerve injury she suffered a few years ago in a car accident. She also got a pretty bad bruise on her knee. The store wrote up an incident report, and my girlfriend is going to the hospital tonight when she finishes her night class. She had wanted to tough it out, as that's how she usually is. She felt better yesterday, but today she says there's more pain again. She doesn't want to take any chances. We're not sue-happy people by any means. I usually have issues with how many lawsuits there are in this country, but I wonder if in a case like this, it's warranted. I just wanted to get the opinion of others on here. I figure it's probably a slam-dunk case, and they'd probably settle out of court. It's a chain grocery store owned by Albertson's. I'm just wondering if it's worth the effort. Anyone here have an idea how much a settlement might be for a case like this? Any lawyers? Jillian?
