A woman claims she suffered from two dislocated toes after she fell over a display of paver stones at Lowe's Home Centers.
Wilda Daniels filed a lawsuit July 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas Marshall Division against Lowe's Home Centers.
In her complaint, Daniels alleges she was shopping at Lowe's in Longview on Aug. 22, 2012, when she tripped over a display of dark paver patio stones that had been laid over concrete of a similar color.
Due to the incident, Daniels suffered two dislocated toes on her right foot that required surgical intervention and incurred medical costs, the complaint says. She also claims she experienced pain and suffering, endured mental anguish, experienced disfigurement and suffered from physical impairment.
Daniels blames Lowe's for causing her injuries, accusing the store of gross negligence.
The plaintiff seeks economic, non-economic and compensatory damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.
She is being represented by attorney N. Eric Cooper of The Cooper Law Firm in Longview.
