Slippery shampoo suit filed against grocery store
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 Ã¯Â¿Â½ 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
