HOUSTON – An alleged wet floor at a Houston restaurant caused a woman to fall, according to her suit.
Tachaun Bates filed a complaint on May 25 in the Harris County District Court against China East Bay Inc., doing business as V Star, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 14, 2016, she was an invitee at defendant's V Star restaurant when she slipped and fell due to a slick or slippery fluid on the floor. She alleges she sustained injuries that caused her to suffer medical expenses, loss of earnings, pain and disfigurement.
