A woman who slipped and fell at a Dollar General Store while holding her daughter has settled her personal injury lawsuit.
The suit claimed on August 6, 2006, while visiting the store she slipped on a puddle of blue soap that was on the store floor. She alleges she was holding her daughter at the time that she fell. The suit sought damages in excess of $15,000 but less than $50,000.
The terms of the settlement were undisclosed, but a Madison County Judge signed off on the agreement last week. As part of the agreement, Dollar General was not forced to admit any fault or wrongdoing.
Dollar General was negligent for failing to warn her of the blue soapy liquid that was on the floor and for failing to clean the floor, claimed the suit.
The woman claims her daughter suffered injuries to her chest, ribs and legs that caused pain and medical expenses. And the woman suffered injury to her abdomen, knees and stomach which resulted in pain, suffering, lost wages and medical expenses.
