TYLER – A Long Branch woman alleges she fell in the visitor's restroom at a jail facility because of water on the floor.

Charmayne Jett filed a complaint on Jan. 31 in the Tyler Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Corecivic Inc., formerly known as Corrections Corp. of America, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 13, 2016, she was injured while at the defendant’s building located at the Bradshaw State Jail facility when she slipped and fell in water that had accumulated on the visitor's restroom floor. She alleges she suffered pain, mental anguish, impairment, medical expenses and lost earning capacity because of the incident. 

The plaintiff holds Corecivic Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently allowed individuals traverse the property with a known unreasonably dangerous condition and failed to take appropriate precautions or warnings to prevent harm to such individuals.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages within the jurisdictional limits of the court, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs of court and such other and further relief, both general and special. She is represented by Marc C. Mayfield of Mayfield Law Office in Longview.
