Beaumont local Edalynn Roper has filed a slip and fall lawsuit against Wal-Mart Stores for injuries she allegedly received two years ago.
The suit was filed April 11 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the lawsuit, on April 18, 2011, Roper was shopping at the Beaumont Wal-Mart when she stepped on a liquid substance on the floor.
The suit accuses Wal-Mart of negligently permitting the floor to become slippery and failing to inspect and maintain its premises.
Seeking more than $100,000 in damages, Roper is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain and lost wages.
Attorney John Parsons of the Beaumont law firm Lindsay, Lindsay & Parsons represents her.
Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.
Case No. E194-236
