A Galveston County customer has sued a restaurant and its individual owners, alleging negligence in a slip and fall accident.

Sarah Black filed a lawsuit April 30 in Galveston County District Court against James and Kelly McClure, doing business as Jimmy’s on the Pier, of Galveston, alleging personal injuries and premises liability.

According to the complaint, Black's fall resulted from the presence of liquids on the floor of the defendants’ premises.

The suit says the defendants knew of and failed to correct a dangerous condition on their property. Black cites the business and its owners with liability in: failing to exercise ordinary care in attending to the floor surface; specifically, in failing to properly maintain, inspect, correct and provide warnings about the hazard.

The plaintiff cites: physical pain, suffering and impairment; mental anguish; loss of earnings and earning capacity; and loss of household services.

Black seeks: compensation in excess of $1 million; pre- and post-judgment interest; attorney fees; expenses; and costs.

She is represented by attorney Christopher Bertini of Bertini Law Firm in Galveston.

Galveston County District Court case number: CV-0074162.
