BATON ROUGE – A Baton Rouge woman is suing a drug store chain claiming she was injured in a fall at one of its local stores.
Camelia Whatley, and husband David, filed a lawsuit against Walgreen Louisiana Co. Inc. in the 19th Judicial District Court on Feb. 20. Whatley claims that while traversing down the hair product aisle in the defendant’s establishment she suddenly and without warning slipped on a blue liquid and fell to the floor. The plaintiff alleges she sustained injuries to her neck and back in the fall. The suit maintains Whatley had to be transported to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital via ambulance immediately following the accident.
The defendant is accused of negligence, failure to properly maintain the isle of the store in a manner that is not hazardous to its customers and failure to timely cleanup the blue liquid that was on the aisle.
An unspecified amount is sought for the physical, emotional and financial damages incurred by plaintiff.
Counsel for the plaintiff is Charles J. Fulda IV of Baton Rouge-based Brouillette Law Firm.
This case has been assigned to Sec 27 Judge Todd Hernandez.
Case no. 619326.
