Summary Judgment in favor of grocery store for fall on “natural accumulation” of water

Plaintiff slipped and fell on water on the floor of defendant’s store and suffered a torn ligament in her right ankle, resulting in significant medical bills, and claims of permanent disability and scarring.  The fall occurred near the front of the store and it had been raining earlier that day.  In defendant’s motion for summary judgment, Attorney Michael Radak argued that there was no evidence that accumulation of snow and ice was anything other than a “natural accumulation” for which the premises owner could not be liable.   Summary judgment was entered in favor of defendant.
