A woman has filed a lawsuit for injuries she sustained in a slip and fall accident at a Wal-Mart store. On July 24th, Deborah Waddil filed a lawsuit claiming she was shopping at a Wal-Mart store in Quincy, Illinois when she slipped on a wet floor and fell in August of 2014. The complaint alleges Wal-Mart and their employees were negligent of warning customers of the potential danger and that they did not provide a safe atmosphere for shoppers. Waddil is seeking compensation of more than $50,000 and court costs. Wal-Mart is denying liability claiming the plaintiff failed to practice due care to prevent the accident.
