HOUSTON — A Houston woman is suing Wal-Mart, alleging its negligence caused injuries to the plaintiff.
Sandra Campise filed a complaint Feb. 15 in Harris County District Court against Wal-Mart Stores Inc., doing business as Wal-Mart Supercenter alleging the defendant breached its duty of ordinary care by failing to maintain a clean area.
According to the complaint, on Feb. 15, 2015, Campise was shopping for groceries at the Wal-Mart store at FM 529 in Houston. While she was walking through the produce section, the suit says, her foot slipped and and she fell on a substance later determined to be water.
As a result, the lawsuit states, Campise suffered physical injuries, pain and medical expenses. The plaintiff alleges Wal-Mart Supercenter failed to keep the floor in the store dry, failed to post signs to warn invitees of the store's slippery area and failed to clean or maintain the store's premises considering the probability and magnitude of potential harm to others.
Campise seeks trial by jury, unliquidated damages of more than $70,000, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, court costs, attorney fees and all other equitable relief. She is represented by attorney Jimmy N. Bowden of Law Offices of Tuan Khuu and Associates in Houston.
