Silsbee resident Mae Wood has filed suit against Target Corp., alleging the retailer owed her a duty to warn of or remedy the holes in its parking lot.

The suit was filed Sept. 1 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Dec. 22, 2009, Wood was outside the Beaumont Target when she stepped in a hole in the parking lot and fell.

The suit alleges Target negligently failed to warn shoppers of the dangers and inspect and maintain its parking lot.

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

Beaumont attorney Tom Oxford of Waldman Smallwood represents her.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. D190-807
