GALVESTON - A Houston woman claims she sustained injuries while visiting a local beach club two years ago, recent court documents say.

Katherine Bollman is suing Terramesa Holdings LLC, Pointe West Beach Club, Beach Club at Pointe West and Property Owners Association of Pointe West Inc. for the alleged Sept. 4, 2011, incident.

The personal injury lawsuit was filed a day before the event's two-year anniversary in Galveston County District Court.

In the original petition, Bollman asserts that she "slipped and fell due to water on the floor of the bathroom" at the premises.

"As a result of this incident, the plaintiff suffered personal injuries," the suit says.

It, however, does not specify what parts of Bollman's body were reportedly hurt.

The respondents are faulted for:

  • Failing to maintain a safe premises;

  • Failing to warn the plaintiff of the dangerous condition;

  • Failing to exercise reasonable care to reduce or eliminate the risk; and

  • Failing to act as a reasonably prudent person would have done under the same or similar circumstances.

Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

She is represented by attorney Jack Todd Ivey of the Ivey Law Firm P.C. in Houston.

The case has been assigned to Galveston County 212th District Court Judge Susan Criss.

Case No. 13-CV-1156
