Beaumont resident Mary Daleo has filed suit against the H-E-B Grocery Co., alleging she slipped while shopping.

The suit was filed May 6 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show that the incident occurred on Sept. 11 during normal business hours.

However, the suit does not state the location of the H-E-B where the incident occurred. Nor does the suit state what Daleo slipped in or what she was doing at the time of the incident.

The suit accuses H-E-B of negligently failing to inspect and maintain its premises and warn shoppers of the danger.

The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Attorney Mitchell Toups of the Beaumont law firm Weller, Green, Toups & Terrell represents her.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. A189-960
