HOUSTON — A patron at a Jack in the Box is suing for $500,000 after allegedly sustaining injuries two years ago when she slipped on a wet floor in the restaurant.
Alma Watson of Harris County filed a complaint on Feb. 24 in the Harris County District Court against defendants Jack in the Box Eastern Division LP and A3H Goods LP, alleging that they breached their duty to provide a safe environment and failed to take actions to prevent injuries.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that while she was at the defendants' restaurant on Oct. 25, 2015, she slipped and fell due to a puddle of water on the floor. Watson sustained severe and permanent injuries, including a fractured vertebrae, the complaint said. The plaintiff faulted the two companies because the defendants allegedly allowed the existence of a dangerous condition to remain on the premises.
The plaintiff requested a trial by jury and seeks monetary and all other relief she is shown to be entitled to. She is represented by Michael B. Jolly of the Michael B. Jolly Law Office in Houston.
