GRETNA – A Jefferson Parish woman is suing a local mall where she allegedly was injured after falling in a puddle of water that accumulated at the building’s entrance.

Kathy Ancale Landry filed suit against Esplanade Mall Limited Partnership, Simon Property Group Inc., ABM Industrial Services Inc. and Liberty Mutual Insurance Company in the 24th Judicial District Court on Sept. 9.

Landry claims that on Sept. 17, 2012 she attempted to enter Esplanade Mall located at 1401 W. Esplanade in Kenner when she slipped in a puddle of water and fell to the ground. The plaintiff alleges the water was allowed to accumulate at the entrance of the building. Landry asserts she received numerous injuries in the incident including to her right knee.

The defendant is accused of failing to place wet floor signs at the entrance where the plaintiff entered, failing  to properly place mats at the entrance, allowing water to collect at the mall entrance and failing to supervise those who maintained the premises.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses and therapy expenses.

Landry is represented by attorney Robert Angelle of Metairie.

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

Case no. 730-853.
