HOUSTON – A local man claims that he was the victim of a slip and fall almost two years ago at the University of Houston and has pursued legal action.
David Macleod is suing ACS Flooring Group, Inc.; ACS Maintenance Solutions, Inc.; Aramark Services, Inc.; and Aramark Confection Corp. in the Harris County 11th District Court.
Macleod’s lawsuit, filed on Oct. 2, says the plaintiff was injured at the school’s Cullen Performance Hall on Oct. 31, 2016 when he slipped on a slippery substance in the lobby.
The defendants were reportedly performing additional maintenance and renovation work at the time of the incident.
“The substance appeared to be floor stripper and had been applied to the floor by or at the direction of the defendants,” the original petition says.
Macleod asserts that the respondents did not barricade the area or place warning signs.
Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
He is represented by J. Robert Black of Black Law, PC in Houston.
