In Tennessee and across the United States when we go into stores to shop we except there to be signs to signs to show us to the different departments, to the checkouts, and also to the restrooms. We also expect stores to do all they can to keep us safe while we shop by posting caution signs when the floor is wet because of the weather or a spill. Unfortunately that does not always happen and sometimes people suffer an injury as a result. If you or someone you care about has suffered a personal injury at a public place due to lack of signs or a warning, it is important that you talk to a Tennessee personal lawyer right away. They will listen to your case and make sure you get the compensation you are entitled to for the injury you have suffered.
In this case, Gwendolyn Adams was shopping in the J.C. Penny store on October 10, 2009 and slipped a fell on the wet floor because there were no warning signs to warn her about the hazardous condition of the floor. The lawsuit is claiming that J.C. Penny failed to make sure their premises were maintained in a reasonably safe condition, failing to warn people about a dangerous situation, and failing to warn customers about this condition and failing to place warning signs around the wet floor. The company is also accused of failing to adequately train their employees about where to place warning signs and how to warn customers of a wet floor and failing to tell them to use the proper care measures required for the situation.
The lawsuit is seeking damages for medical bills, physical pain and suffering, mental pain and suffering, loss of wages, loss of earning capacity, loss of enjoyment of life, and interest as well as court costs.
