Opal Lennix was perusing the shoe section in her local Wal-Mart store in Laplace, Louisiana when she unwittingly stepped into a puddle of water that had accumulated on the floor. The slippery surface caused Lennix to lose her balance and fall, sustaining a number of injuries in the process. Her case against the discount behemoth claims that she experienced hip, knee, and back injuries from the fall, and that the impact caused her to develop a chronic joint disorder that continues to plague her. No word yet on the possibility of a settlement in the case, although Wal-Mart’s request to have the suit removed to federal court was granted.
