NEW ORLEANS – A New Orleans man is suing a Louisiana dialysis company for negligence after he allegedly slipped and fell in a puddle of water at the corporation's facility in the Freret neighborhood.

Louis Williams filed suit against Davita Dialysis Contracting in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court on Aug. 22.

The plaintiff is seeking over $50,000 in damages for physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, medical expenses and loss of enjoyment of life.

The case has been assigned to District M Judge Paulette R. Irons.
