Slip and fall accidents can be dangerous and affect the lives of victims and their families, in many ways. One such mishap claimed a life in Walmart’s Jonesville store.

More Details:

The man who died is James R. Secord. He experienced a slip and fall accident in Walmart’s Jonesville-based store on May 27th, 2018. The accident occurred while James was exiting his vehicle in Walmart’s automotive service department at 701 Olds Street.

How did this accident happen?

James R. Secord, 67 from North Adams, stepped out of his car after parking in the Automotive Service Department. There was a concrete defect that was the reason for his slip and fall accident. This fall caused multiple injuries to Secord. The list of injuries includes a broken wrist, fractured ribs, blood clots and even problems like contusions and abrasions.

James succumbed to fatal injuries he suffered in this slip and fall accident on June 1st, 2018 and has left behind Pamala Secord, 48, his wife.

What Else?

Pamala Secord filed a lawsuit against Walmart on August 17th, 2018 stating everything mentioned above. Since Walmart is a nationwide firm, the lawsuit was moved to federal court on October 17th, 2018. Mrs. Secord has filed this lawsuit, seeking compensation for her husband’s death due to the slip and fall accident at Walmart’s Jonesville store.

Any other reason for filing a lawsuit?

There seems to be one more reason Mrs. Secord has filed this lawsuit against Walmart. Apparently, the company has failed to maintain the property and is still showing negligence in repairing the damaged concrete that led to the slip and fall death of James R. Secord, says the lawsuit filed by Mrs. Secord.
