Woman Sues Walmart After Premature Delivery

by in Premature Babies

A woman who filed suit against Wal-Mart is asking for damages for herself and her son, who, she says, was born prematurely after she fell in a store.

Radhia Haj-Mabrouk contends in the suit filed Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court that she slipped on water on the floor in the Wal-Mart on Garden Groh Boulevard in August 2005, fell and was hurt.

Haj-Mabrouk was pregnant then and her son was delivered by emergency C-section later that day, the suit says.Haj-Mabrouk is seeking $1 million on her behalf and $2 million on behalf of her son, Lofti Haj-Mabrouk, according to the lawsuit.

A Wal-Mart spokeswoman said Friday that the company had not yet been served with the lawsuit.

I wonder if she has a doctor backing her side of the lawsuit?

  2. Well…this is a pretty big suit and Walmart doesn’t usually go down without a big fight so – one would think that in order to feel confident enough to file a suit this big the word of a medical professional should be included…
