HOUSTON – A Harris County woman alleges she was injured when an elevator she was in at a medical facility suddenly dropped.

Cynthia Aguilar filed a complaint on Aug. 23 in the Harris County District Court against Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, Thysenkrupp Elevators Corp., et al., alleging negligence and premises liability.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 21, 2016, she was injured at the Clear Lake Regional Medical Center when the elevator she was in unexpectedly fell several floors down before coming to an abrupt stop. The suit states defendant Thysenkrupp inspected, serviced and/or maintained the elevator.

The plaintiff holds Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, Thysenkrupp Elevators Corp., et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to inspect or maintain the elevators.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of over $200,000 but less than $1 million and such other and further relief to which she may be justly entitled. She is represented by Carlos Dedios, Mark Fierro and Marco Gonzalez of The Gonzalez Law Group PLLC in Houston.
