While buying some sunscreen at Wal-Mart, Shounaz Sadruddin says she slipped in some shampoo. 

On Nov. 13 Sadruddin filed suit against Wal-Mart Stores in Jefferson County District Court, alleging the mega-retailer should have discovered and remedied the dangerous condition.

According to the lawsuit, on July 17, 2013, Sadruddin was shopping at a Wal-Mart. As she went to get some sunscreen lotion, she took a few steps and fell in some shampoo that had spilled on the floor, injuring her shoulder, wrist and knee.

The suit alleges Wal-Mart should have known about the spilled shampoo, failed to make regular inspections of the premises, warn customers and correct the hazard.

The suit says the plaintiff is entitled to recover attorney’s fees under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

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

Port Arthur attorney Brandon Monk represents her.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. E194-971
