NEW ORLEANS – A woman who claims she slipped on a patch of oil in a Walgreen's parking lot is suing over her alleged injuries.
Dale Mathieu, and husband Berman, filed suit against Walgreen Louisiana Co., Inc on April 20th in the Orleans Parish District Court.
The plaintiff claims that on May 11, 2014 she was lawfully on the premises of the Walgreen store located at 7401 Read Boulevard in New Orleans. On that date Mathieu alleges she was injured when she suddenly and without warning tripped and fell on an oily liquid that was placed or had accumulated in a section of Walgreen’s parking lot near the parking space where she had parked her vehicle. The plaintiff contends that Walgreen, through its agents and employees was responsible for the inspection, maintenance and condition of the premises, specifically to remove the liquid from the ground in the area where the accident occurred to make the area safe for the plaintiff and other persons lawfully in the area.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for medical and other health care expenses, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of wages, income, and earning capacity, functional impairment and disability and emotional distress.
The plaintiff is represented by attorney Jeffrey T. Greenberg.
The case has been assigned to Division B Judge Regina H. Woods.
Case no. 2015-3680.
