Trips to your favorite retailer to shop around can really brighten up anyone’s day. However, while you’re picking out that nice new dress or that set of tools you’ve been wanting, you can potentially be one step away from debilitating injuries. A Humble woman knows how damaging an accidental fall can be, but she’s now seeking what she deserves.
According to a report, the 73-year-old woman filed a claim on April 9th after she tripped and fell at a popular arts and crafts retailer. The lawsuit, filed with the U.S. District Court in Southern Texas, Houston Division, alleges a dangerous condition was created by the store on its property.
The woman claims she was looking for decorative American flags for her 55th high school reunion and flowers for her parents’ graves when she fell on a wooden pallet that was left unmarked and unguarded. After her fall, the woman was unable to get up and had to call for help.
While she was helped and left the premises, the pain she suffered in her shoulder proved to be too much and required surgery. The lawsuit claims the store should have taken measures to keep its floors free of dangers. The woman is now seeking $125,000 in compensation for damages, plus interest and court fees.
