Port Arthur resident Jennifer McLain has filed suit against Adelle Samora and fashion retailer Citi Trends for injuries she received while shopping for hair accessories.

The suit was filed Nov. 30 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, McLain was shopping at Citi Trends on Oct. 8. While looking at a rack filled with headbands, store employee Samora allegedly struck her in the head with a dolly carrying heavy boxes.

In her suit, McLain asserts that she was focused on the headband rack and did not hear or see the dolly coming toward her.

The suit also maintains Samora admitted she was at fault afterwards and that she should have been paying attention to her path of travel.

The suit alleges the defendants failed to warn McLain of the impending 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.

Port Arthur attorney Langstan Adams represents her.

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

Case No. D191-400
