Orange County Woman Injured in Slip and Fall
I can’t imagine what a slip and fall would be like, especially in a very public place. I would think it would be very painful and embarrassing.
Recently, a woman from Orange County had fell and now is claiming that she was injured in a fall at a Orlando retail facility. Which isn’t uncommon, a lot of slip and fall incidents are in retail stores.
According to reports, Abigail Perez Alicea had filed her complaint on June 12th against 7 Eleven Inc. she said that the retail store had not kept the store in a “safe environment for its business invitees”.
The complaint said that Abigail had went to the store on March 27, 2016 and then slipped and fell on a liquid substance that had been allowed to “remain” on the floor by the 7-Eleven employees. The fall apparently caused the woman to sustain injuries.
7-Eleven Inc. VS Slip and Fall
Of course the woman is going to hold 7-Eleven Inc. responsible. The complaint says that the defendant had “failed to adequately” warn the woman that the area was dangerous and in an unsafe condition. They also failed to investigate where the accident happened.
Now the injured woman is requesting a trial by jury and is seeking judgement against the 7-Eleven for damages as well as costs and further relief.
Slip and Fall Trial
When determining whose at fault in any case can be pretty tricky. It’s even harder when people are angry and big money could be involved in a payout. Some times the question is, if it’s a business should the business just go ahead and try to settle with the injured party? Or should they defend their company name and take things to the public/ court? Both situations work out, just court battles are always a risk for all those involved.
Melrose Alexander decided to take things to the courtroom for their injury. Alexander said that the fall was caused by the condition of a poorly maintained sidewalk which just happens to be adjacent to a housing development in Brooklyn. The incident happened in June 2011. Alexander however, isn’t a resident of the mentioned apartment building.
Of course they’re claiming that the NYCHA had negligence for caring of this area properly and if they had they would have seen the ten inch long crash in the sidewalk.
However, the owners claim that they had no notice of any sidewalk defect and also argued the location of the fall as well as the allegation of the dangerous condition.
They jury however, agreed with the injured party. The sidewalk wasn’t in safe condition. They did say that the NYCHA was around 30% responsible for the incident however Alexander was mostly responsible for her own incident.

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBI can happen when the head suddenly and with great force impacts an object. TBI can also occur when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue.
Symptoms of mild TBI include: headache, confusion, lightheadedness, dizziness, blurred vision or tired eyes, ringing in the ears, bad taste in the mouth, fatigue or lethargy, a change in sleep patterns, behavioral or mood changes, and trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking.
A victim with a moderate or severe TBI may show these same symptoms, but may also have a headache that gets worse or does not go away, repeated vomiting or nausea, convulsions or seizures, an inability to awaken from sleep, dilation of one or both pupils of the eyes, slurred speech, weakness or numbness in the extremities, loss of coordination, and increased confusion, restlessness, or agitation.
