An Allegheny County jury awarded a McCandless woman $399,706 on Wednesday in a lawsuit in which she slipped on a freshly waxed floor while she was working at a K-Mart in the North Hills.

The jury awarded the money to Karen Troy, 55, who slipped Oct. 17, 2008 at the K-Mart in McIntyre Square as she was stocking the shelves. Troy's attorney, Jennifer Webster, said her client fractured her back and has been unable to work for more than two years.

The lawsuit said an employee of A-Li Quality Services, of Parma, Ohio, was waxing the floor in the K-Mart and failed to post notice that the floor was slick. The jury deemed A-Li was responsible for the payout.

Common Pleas Judge Alan Hertzberg presided over the trial, which began last week.
