A Travis County woman brought a lawsuit against a hotel company on grounds of alleged premises liability in 2014.

Argelia K. Wardwell filed against Fertitta Hospitality LLC d/b/a The San Luis Resort, Spa & Conference Center of Galveston in Galveston County District Court on May 15, claiming liability in an April 2014 accident.

The complaint states that Wardwell was walking on the defendant’s premises located at 5222 Seawall Blvd., Galveston, on or about April 26, 2014, when she slipped and fell.

The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for failure to provide adequate warning signs or barriers along the walkway to indicate the slippery surface; to exercise reasonable care to inspect the premises and discover the hazardous conditions; and to properly maintain the premises and remedy the alleged dangerous condition.

According to the filing, Wardwell claims to have sustained severe physical pain and mental anguish; medical expenses; and past and future loss of earning capacity.

The plaintiff seeks monetary relief in an amount between $100,000 and $200,000 as compensation for damages; pre- and post-judgment interest; attorney’s fees; expenses, and costs.

Wardwell is represented by attorney Glen Morgan of Reaud, Morgan & Quinn in Beaumont.
