There may be a new cycle for hair products: wash, rinse and slip.

Christine Lemonis claims she slipped and fell in a puddle of spilled shampoo while shopping at an H-E-B Grocery store.

Lemonis filed suit against the company on May 27 in the Jefferson County District Court.

According to her suit, Lemonis was shopping at a Port Arthur H-E-B when she slipped in either shampoo or conditioner. Either way, Lemonis says the grocery store had a duty to warn her about the danger.

"Defendant retained the responsibility for the safety of persons attending the premises," the suit says. "Plaintiff alleges Defendant and its employees � were guilty of negligence which was a proximate cause of her injuries."

Lemonis further alleges H-E-B negligently failed to inspect and maintain its premises.

She is suing for past and future mental anguish, medical expenses, impairment and loss of enjoyment of life.

Lemonis is demanding a trial by jury and is represented by attorney Travis McCall of the McCall & Devenzio law firm.

The case has been assigned to Judge Bob Wortham, 58th Judicial District.

Case No. A181-810
