HOUSTON — A Harris County woman is suing Wal-Mart, alleging breach of duty and negligence in failing to prevent injuries.
Michaela Joy Wagner filed a complaint Jan. 26 in Harris County District Court against Wal-Mart Stores Texas LLC, alleging failure to keep its premises safe.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 12, 2016, while pushing her shopping cart at a Wal-Mart store in Katy, Wagner slipped and fell on a dust-covered flyswatter that had been lying on the floor. As a result, the suit says, Wagner she suffered serious injuries, resulting in pain and suffering, medical expenses and mental anguish.
The plaintiff alleges Wal-Mart failed to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition, failed to inspect the premises and failed to inform customers of such existing dangerous conditions.
Wagner seeks trial by jury, monetary relief of $200,000 to $1 million, plus damages of any kind, court costs, expenses and all other equitable relief. She is represented by attorneys John Arthur Daspit and Michael Grinsfelder of Daspit Law Firm in Houston.
