Woman files slip and fall suit against North Miami Costco

Posted on October 5th, 2011 No Comments

A slip and fall lawsuit was recently filed against a North Miami Costco store by a 74-year old New York woman.

The woman slipped on a Slurpee that was spilled on the floor of the Costco store.  She suffered a spinal injury and a shoulder injury and had to be hospitalized.

The lawsuit will be handled in New York to make it easier for the plaintiff.  Costco attempted to have the case held in Florida, but the woman told the court that traveling to Florida would be too painful with her injuries.

The court agreed with the woman and stated that “it would not be in the interest of substantial justice to try this action in Florida instead of New York.
