GRETNA – A St. Charles Parish woman is suing a national hardware store for injuries she claims to have received in a fall at one of its local stores.

Regina Williams filed suit against Home Depot USA Inc. and ISS Facility Services in the 24th Judicial District Court on Jan. 22. Williams claims she was shopping at the Home Depot at 2625 Veterans Memorial Blvd. in Metairie when she fell on residue from a floor cleaning solution. The plaintiff alleges she received severe and painful injuries in the fall.

The defendant is accused of failing to properly maintain the premises, failing to warn customers of a known hazard, failing to adequately inspect the premises, placing customers in a perilous situation by lack of inspection and creating a known hazardous condition.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for physical pain and suffering, mental pain and suffering, disability, medical expenses, lost wages and loss of earning capacity.

Williams is represented by attorney William E. Mura of New Orleans.

The case has been assigned to Division H Judge Glenn B. Ansardi.

Case no. 723-085.
