Is a store liable for my injuries if I trip over a concrete paving abutments in their parking lot

In a current Court of Appeals case, Ridley v. Dolgen Corp, LLC, decided February 10, 2020, the Court said that if the plaintiff had equal knowledge of the hazard and failed to exercise reasonable and ordinary care, the store was not liable for her injuries. Apparently, the plaintiff testified under oath that she was quite familiar with the store and parking lot but was distracted by a display rack. Slip and fall cases, like this one, are very fact intensive and must demonstrate that the person who sustains an injury did not have equal knowledge of a defective condition as did the owner of the property.
