GALVESTON - An area woman seeks damages following an alleged slip and fall at a Texas City convenience store at the beginning of the year, recent court documents say.

Wanda Kay Bailey filed a lawsuit against AA & MM International Inc., doing business as Amburn Food Mart, in Galveston County Court at Law No. 1 on April 14.

The suit shows Bailey was shopping at the respondent's business prior to the subject incident the night of Jan. 19.

She recalls walking near an ice-filled cooler filled with individual beers close to the front entrance when she slipped and fell on a water puddle.

After the fall, according to the original petition, Bailey noticed one of the defendant's employees mopping the next aisle over.

The plaintiff asserts the worker "made no effort" to help her, additionally stating she confronted him about an apparent lack of warning signs.

"In response, the employee stated that there were not enough warning signs, but made no apologies and continued mopping," the suit says.

It blames the respondent for premises liability and negligent activity.

Consequently, Bailey seeks unspecified monetary damages.

Attorney Mark Aronowitz of Texas City is representing the complainant, and Galveston County Court at Law No. 1 Judge John Grady is presiding over the case.

Cause No. 69,678
