A Queensland woman is suing Woolworths for $750,000 after she slipped on a puddle of an employee’s vomit near the entrance of the Ipswich store.
“I’d just walked in. I didn’t even see it. I just went down,” she said.
“At first I thought it was orange juice, but then I smelt it and thought ‘This is somebody’s vomit’.”
The claim states Mrs Hunt injured her lower back, left hip, her knees and her left foot in the fall in November 30, 2012.
The supermarket chain has disputed the extent of her injuries.
