GALVESTON – A Harris County woman is suing a realty management company and the apartment complex it represents after allegedly slipping and falling on its premises.
Gloria Padilla filed suit on Aug. 26 in Galveston County District Court against Venterra Realty Management Co., Inc. and VR Park at Waterford Limited Partnership, both of Galveston County, citing premises liability and negligence.
According to the complaint, Padilla was invited to visit the Park at Waterford Harbor Apartments on March 21 when, upon heading to her car, she slipped and fell on a patch of algae, suffering injuries to her neck, back, left and right hip, left leg, right knee, and other parts of her body.
Padilla is suing over negligence allegations, citing that it was up to the defendants to maintain a safe area or to alert her to the potential danger, which they allegedly did not
She demands a trial by jury and a reward in excess of the minimum of the court allowable, plus pre- and post-judgment interest and court costs, as well as other damages as the court sees fit for past and future medical expenses, past and future pain and suffering and mental anguish, past and future physical impairment and disfigurement, and past lost wages and future loss of earning capacity.
The plaintiff is being represented by John Arthur Daspit, Robert Morse and Christopher Morrell of Daspit Law Firm in Houston.
