Florence Brown of Port Arthur, Texas has filed a lawsuit against H-E-B Grocery Stores following a slip and fall she suffered at one of their locations. The incident occurred at the Port Arthur store on May 13th, 2009 when Brown slipped on a puddle of water she claims was not labeled by the business’s staff. According to Brown, the business and its employees had a duty to make the hazard known to her and other customers.
Brown also maintains in her suit against the grocery giant that the business did not maintain safe levels for customers by failing to inspect and keep the premises clean. She lists past and future mental anguish, impairment, medical expenses and disfigurement as factors for seeking monetary damages. The case will go to court in April.
