The old adage that nothing good happens after 2 a.m. applies.

Every time I see water on the floor I always 'joke'...
"Quick, someone put up a cone!"
It's a somewhat joke because people DO take advantage of puddles - a loud statement like that can stop a convenient lawsuit.

I would claim “force majeure.” it’s obvious that the puddle was caused by rain... Which is an act of God.

I thought there was a one year time limit to file personal injury lawsuits. Does that not apply in that state?

Walmart is sued with depressing frequency, mostly for slip and falls, but has a corporate policy to fight each and every one of these suits.

A typical in store video shows some individual taking a container of liquid from a shelf, opening it, pouring it on the floor, then backing up and walking through it, before slipping and falling.

This video gets particularly funny when there is nobody around who notices, so the “victim” gets up, looks around, then does another slip and fall on the same spot when somebody is coming their direction.

While this usually wins court cases, it is a pity that Walmart doesn’t follow up and counter-sue, not the faker, since they probably don’t have much money, but the contingency lawyer who backed them, for “barratry”, filing frivolous and fraudulent lawsuits, which can cost a lawyer his license.

It would be worth it to Walmart to actually pay the scoundrel to testify that their lawyer knew it was a fake, just so that such sharks know that they had better think twice before trying to parasite from them.
