This case involves a mother who slipped and fell at a supermarket while shopping with a 3-month-old infant. The infant was in a carrier on the mother’s person. Before the woman had come into the store, an associate had recently unloaded several cases of bottled water. The associate had not realized that a few of the bottles were punctured and after he left, the bottles began to leak onto the floor. The mother went into the bottled water aisle and slipped on the puddle of water that had formed next to the shelf. She suffered spinal damage and the infant suffered a head injury from the impact. The infant was anticipated to have developmental complications as a result of the incident.
