IA man who was injured in a slip and fall accident filed a lawsuit against Sam’s Club in Joliet, Illinois. The complaint was filed in Will County Courthouse against Walmart, which is doing business as Sam’s Club.
Hector Paz went shopping at the warehouse club on January 22, 2018. According to the lawsuit, he suffered a slip and fall accident as he was entering the store “via the vestibule located at the front.” However, the exact nature of his fall was not reported.
