GRETNA – A woman who allegedly fractured her face in a fall in the parking lot of a corporate pharmacy is suing.
Monique Lecompte filed suit against Walgreen Louisiana Co. Inc., Walgreen Pharmacy, Travelers Property and Casualty Company of America and American National Insurance in the 24th Judicial District Court on Aug. 6.
