Dana Falcon, a Market Basket employee who sued the store two years ago when an oven exploded, has filed a new suit for the same injury against All Star Plumbing.

As previously reported, Falcon filed an application for injunctive relief against TSTL Investments, doing business as Market Basket No. 2, on June 21, 2011, in Jefferson County District Court. 

Two years later, on June 4 she filed a new suit against All Star Plumbing.

According to the first suit, on June 5, 2011, Falcon was injured while working for the store when a commercial oven exploded.

The second suit alleges the same injury. However, the second suit, instead of faulting Market Basket, blames All Star Plumbing, alleging the defendant performed several repairs on the oven between 2009 and 2010.

The suit accuses All Star Plumbing of negligently failing to perform the repairs in a good workman like manner.

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

Attorney B. Adam Terrell of Weller, Green, Toups and Terrell in Beaumont represents the plaintiff.

Dallas attorney Kimberly P. Charter represents the defendant.

Case No. A190-315
