Woman sues Joliet store after sidewalk slip and fall

slip and fall lawyer

After a slip and fall accident, a woman who fractured her ankle filed a lawsuit against a grocery and tobacco store in Joliet. The suit claimed the defective sidewalk outside the store caused her fall.
Leslie Lee accused Sanford Food Mart of negligence in her lawsuit. The store allegedly failed in its duty to maintain its premises, including the walkways nearby.
Lee suffered a slip and fall accident on the sidewalk when she visited Sanford Food Mart in September 2018. Along with a broken ankle, she sustained other severe injuries that required hospitalization and surgeries.
According to the lawsuit filed in Will County, Lee did not know about the defective sidewalk prior to her fall. She is seeking damages in excess of $50,000.
Premises liability is a complex area of law as proving negligence is not always a straightforward matter. It requires a thorough investigation of the details surrounding a slip and fall accident. In this case, an important consideration is whether the store knew or should have known about the defective sidewalk and failed to repair it.
