Area resident Jeffrey Decuir has brought a slip-and-fall lawsuit against O'Reilly Automotive.

The suit was filed July 5 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Feb. 6 Decuir was entering the O'Reilly Auto Parts in Nederland when he slipped and fell in a wet area.

The suit does not state what type of liquid caused the spill but does allege, however, O'Reilly Automotive negligently failed to put up warning signs and inspect and maintain its premises.

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

He is represented by Adam Nichols, attorney for the Beaumont law firm Reaud, Morgan & Quinn.

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

Case No. D192-653
