Port Arthur resident Melinda Zuniga is suing Steve and Carolyn Quebodeaux and their business, Wee Care Childcare, for injuries she suffered when she fell while in the defendants’ employment. 

The suit was filed Feb. 19 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Nov. 21, 2011, Zuniga was an employee of the defendants when she fell, injuring her hip and lower back.

Zuniga had a preexisting condition that was exacerbated by the fall, the suit states.

The suit accuses the defendants of carelessness and negligence but fails to list a specific act of negligence or describe how the plaintiff fell.

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

Port Neches attorney Harry Wright of Wright and Pitre represents her.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. E193-959
