Premises liability claim after customer is injured after fall

The owner of a convenience store has been sued after a client slipped in a puddle of water and fell. The customer has filed a premises liability claim after she suffered serious injuries in the fall. The injured victim alleges that the shop owner was negligent, as shoppers were not warned of the danger posed by a leaking fridge.

Samsung the focus of another products liability suit

Once-loyal Samsung customers might be questioning their allegiance to the company's products after reports broke that another one of its products could be defective. Washing machines across the country are breaking down, and at least one products liability suit has already been filed against the company.
