In the lawsuit filed in Broward Circuit Court, the plaintiff alleges bodily injury due to the defendant failing to provide a safe environment for patrons. The plaintiff alleges she also suffered mental anguish, aggravation of pre-existing medical conditions, earnings loss, and medical expenses. The plaintiff suffered these injuries after slipping on a hazardous substance, causing her to fall. The defendant is being held responsible because it failed to provide a warning regarding the dangerous conditions and for allegedly permitting the unknown substance to remain on the floor.
