HOUSTON – A Harris County individual is seeking more than $1 million from Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital after falling on a wet floor.
Theresa Skinner filed a complaint on Nov. 3 in the Harris County District Court against Memorial Hermann Health System, doing business as Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 3 she was injured when she slipped and fell on a wet surface that was just recently mopped by defendant's employee. She alleges she sustained injuries resulting in physical pain, mental anguish and lost wages and was forced to incur significant medical expenses.
The plaintiff holds Memorial Hermann Health System, doing business as Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital, responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to make the condition safe and failed to provide warning signs of the wet condition in the area.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million and such other lawful and equitable relief. She is represented by Joshua D. Lee, Scott P. Armstrong and Megan C. Savage of Armstrong Lee Savage LLP in Houston.
