HOUSTON — A shopper is suing Wal-Mart Stores Inc., alleging one of the chain's stores took insufficient measures to prevent customer injuries.
Ruth Alvarado of Corpus Christi filed a complaint on Feb. 23, in the Harris County District Court against Wal-Mart Stores Inc., alleging that the store owner breached its duty to exercise ordinary care to keep the premises safe.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was purchasing household items at the store on May 6, 2016, when a large bottle of water fell on her head, resulting in injuries to her cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. The plaintiff holds Wal-Mart Stores Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain the premises free from any defects and failed to warn her of the existence of a dangerous condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of over $100,000 but not more than $200,000 and such other and further relief that are just. She is represented by Benny Cason, Charles Webb Jr. and Parker Webb of Webb Cason P.C. in Corpus Christi.
