Slip and fall case does not make it to trial

The 5th Circuit affirmed summary judgment last week for Lowe’s Home Centers in a Louisiana case that points out some interesting issues that arise in many slip and fall cases.

Plaintiff was walking down an aisle at a Lowe’s and slipped and fell after passing a merchandise pallet filled with light bulbs. Plaintiff had a friend with her who was following close behind her. Plaintiff’s lawsuit claimed that the fall was caused by a board that was coming out from the bottom of this light bulb pallet. Yet neither Plaintiff or her friend actually saw the board she tripped over. Instead, her friend says that he noticed the board only after plaintiff fell and he just put 2 and 2 together. Lowe’s claims, naturally, nothing was out of the ordinary after the fall.
