While visiting his father's home two years ago, Warren Trahan stepped onto a rotten piece of the floor and fell. 

On April 4 he filed suit against the owners of the property, Brian and Crystal Roy in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on April 4, 2011, Trahan was visiting his father’s Port Arthur residence, which was owned by the defendants, when he inadvertently stepped on a rotten part of the floor, causing him to fall through the floor and injure his leg and knee.

The suit alleges the defendants owed him a duty to safeguard him against dangerous conditions and negligently failed to inspect and maintain the premises.

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

Beaumont attorney Adam Terrell of the Weller, Green, Toups & Terrell law firm represents him.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. A194-218
