Tort/Negligence – Slip & Fall – Water Puddle – Unknown Origin (access required)

Nolan v. Seawatch Plantation Master Association, Inc. Although plaintiff slipped and fell in a puddle of water at defendant’s resort, plaintiff does not know where the water came from, nor does she know how long it had been present on the floor prior to her fall. With no evidence that defendant caused the puddle, knew the puddle was there, or had constructive knowledge of the puddle, plaintiff has not made out a prima facie case that defendant was negligent.
