Florida Customer Files Lawsuit Against ALDI for Slip and Fall

A woman from Orange County, Florida, recently filed a lawsuit against the grocery store chain ALDI, claiming negligence and premises liability led her to sustain significant injuries.

The plaintiff, Karen Heissenberg, filed the lawsuit in Orange County Circuit Court February 11 against ALDI Inc. and ALDI Florida LLC, claiming the grocery store failed to uphold its duty to keep its premises reasonably free of dangerous conditions.

In the complaint, Heissenberg says she was at ALDI Food Market in Orlando to purchase groceries when she slipped on a substance near the watermelons in the produce section. She fell on the floor and claimed she sustained serious injuries that resulted in disability, pain and suffering, disfigurement, medical and nursing care and a loss of wages stemming from an inability to work. According to the plaintiff, the store failed to exercise reasonable care in maintaining the premises and did not properly warn patrons of the dangerous condition.

Businesses must keep floors in good condition

Slip-and-fall accidents typically stem from slippery floors, defects in a floor or debris left in aisles or walkways. Stores must maintain reasonably safe conditions for their customers, cleaning up spills and address potential hazards as quickly as possible. A failure to do so may constitute negligence on the part of the business, especially if staff members knew about the hazard well in advance of an injury-causing accident.

For legal guidance on the steps you should take if you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, work with an experienced Sarasota personal injury lawyer at Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh.
