While shoe shopping at Dillard’s, Dora Hudspeth tripped over shoes near the seating area. 

On Feb. 25 Hudspeth filed suit against the department store in Jefferson County District Court, alleging she should have been warned of the unsafe condition of the floors.

According to the lawsuit, on Sept. 31, 2011, Hudspeth was at the Dillard’s in Parkdale Mall in Beaumont shopping for a pair of shoes. There were a large number of shoes scattered on the floor near the seating area and checkout counter.

She was allegedly injured when she stepped on a shoe and fell, the suit states.

The suit alleges Dillard’s negligently failed to inspect and maintain the area and warn shoppers of the unsafe condition.

The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment and loss of household services.

Beaumont attorney Kent Johns of Johns & Johns represents her.

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

Case No. D193-984
