Medical records have been submitted in a lawsuit brought by Beaumont local Bridgette Robinson, who sued Total Petrochemical & Refining USA alleging she tripped in a poorly lit parking lot. 

As previously reported, the suit was filed Feb. 21 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show that on Oct. 4 a notice of filing of medical records was filed by Robinson that include the following:

• Medical and billing records of Beaumont Bone & Joint Clinic;

• Medical and billing records of Beaumont MRI;

• Medical and billing records of Texas Bone & Joint Center;

• Medical and billing records of Texas Rehab Institute; and

• Medical and billing records of Southeast Texas Medical Records.

According to the lawsuit, on Sept. 21, 2011, Robinson, a contracted employee, was performing labor at Total’s facility.

She arrived at the refinery parking lot early that morning and was making her way to the bus when she tripped over a dark wooden pole, according to the suit.

“Plaintiff alleges that the area in question was dark and not appropriately lit,” the suit states. “Plaintiff further alleges that the defendant did not provide an appropriate walkway in order to board onto the buses in question.”

The suit further accuses Total of negligently failing to provide a safe place to work.

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

Beaumont attorney Tommy Yeates of the Moore Landrey law firm represents her.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B193-972
