Slip and Fall

Our client was browsing the meat section at grocery store in Rockville, Maryland when she slipped on BBQ sauce that was left on the floor. The BBQ sauce had been spilled only two minutes before our client slipped on it, and the store had tried to clean it in that time. The store had place a yellow caution sign about six feet from the spill, but it was not visible from the direction our client approached it. After her fall, she could not get back to her feet for several minutes due to the pain and shock of falling. As a result of her fall, she injured her right hip, leg and shoulder and eventually underwent right hip arthroscopy, in addition to extensive physical therapy and other treatments. The store denied liability based on the warning sign and the surveillance video, but we were able to settle the case during private mediation.
