New Orleans resident Nery Freire’s July 2009 grocery shopping trip had an unforeseen conclusion. At a local Winn-Dixie, the shopper says she slipped on a puddle inside the store and fell, sustaining injuries to her knee, ankle, shoulder and spine. Freire’s suit against the store and its cleaning contractor claims that the wet patch was negligently left behind after the floors were cleaned. The area was not marked by safety cones or any other type of warning. Freire is seeking compensation for injuries, medical costs, and other damages she sustained as a result of the injuries.
