BEAUMONT – An upcoming trial of a trip and fall lawsuit against Walgreens has been continued.
Seeking around $75,000 in damages, Dawn Campbell filed a lawsuit Sept. 15, 2015 in Jefferson County District Court against Walgreens Specialty, alleging negligence.
According to the original petition, on Aug. 12, 2015, Campbell was walking down the aisles of the Walgreens in Port Arthur, when she suddenly tripped over a spray pallet lying flat and empty across the aisle.
The case was slated for trial on July 10, but was continued until November 2017.
Court records show Campbell filed an unopposed motion for continuance on May 19, stating both parties need more time to take deposition testimony and that she is still in the process of obtaining medical records.
The suit alleges Walgreens was negligent in failing to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition, failing to inspect for dangerous conditions, failing to correct dangerous conditions and failing to inform of dangerous conditions.
As a result, the lawsuit states, the plaintiff sustained injuries to her legs, neck, and back, physical impairment and disfigurement, pain, suffering and mental anguish, and has incurred medical expenses.
Campbell is represented by attorney Robert Morse of the Daspit Law Firm in Houston.
Jefferson County District Court case number B-197558.
