Coca Cola in litigation after slip and fall accident

Property owners have a responsibility to maintain safe premises. When a slip and fall accident occurs, it can cause serious injury to the victim. Apparently, New Jersey residents may experience such a misfortune at any time.

A female shopper filed a claim against Coca Cola Refreshments recently, after a slip and fall accident happened while she was shopping. She claimed that, as she was walking in the isle containing the drinks, a Coca Cola employee dropped a bottle of Sprite. The bottle burst on impact and the woman slipped and fell as result of the wet floor.

She accused the defendants of being negligent and failing to be observant. She added carelessness and a lack of attention to surroundings, thereby setting up an excessive risk of injury. The plaintiff claimed to have suffered pain and suffering, medical expenses, and mental anguish. She claimed restitution for these, as well as inconvenience, loss of income, court costs, attorney fees, and interest. A further claim was for her inability to further enjoy life and to be of service to society.

When someone is injured in a slip and fall accident as result of the property owner's failure to maintain safe conditions on his or her property, that person retains the right to ask for full and fair recompense. In New Jersey, this may be done by filing a civil claim against the person or entity thought to be responsible. In successfully litigated cases, the victim may receive restitution to help cover medical and other expenses caused by the unfortunate accident.
