GROCERY STORE HAS NO LIABILITY FOR SLIP AND FALL

Associate attorney Heather Bocell obtained summary judgment in favor of a grocery store in a premises liability lawsuit pending in Tarrant County. Plaintiff claimed that she slipped and fell on a large spill of soda, resulting in significant injuries to her knees, back and shoulders. Plaintiff argued that the grocery store should have discovered the spill because an employee had been in the area one minute prior to the Plaintiff’s fall. However, the trial court disagreed and determined that such facts in and of itself did not establish that the store had constructive notice of the soda on the floor prior to the time of the slip and fall.
