An Orleans Parish woman blames drug store employees for causing her to slip and fall.

Accusing store employees of negligence, Viola Wilson filed a lawsuit against Walgreen Drug Stores Aug. 27 in Orleans Parish District Court.

Wilson says she was shopping in the Walgreen on Elks Place in September 2009 when she slipped on water and fell to the floor. She claims she injured "various parts of her body."

Wilson says employees at the drug store should have seen the water on the floor and cleaned it up or warned customers of a potential danger. Wilson wants Walgreen to compensate her for pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost income, medical expenses and court costs.

Attorney Robert T. Hughes of New Orleans is representing Wilson.
