HOUSTON – A Houston man alleges he fell at the George Bush International Airport because no warning was given that the escalator wasn't working.
Michael Smith filed a complaint on Oct. 11 in the Harris County District Court against the city of Houston alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 27, he was walking to the baggage claim area at the George Bush International Airport when he tripped and fell down the inoperable escalator. He alleges he sustained serious injuries resulting in pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost wages and physical impairment and disfigurement as a result of the fall.
The plaintiff holds the city of Houston responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to warn of the condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but less than $1 million and such other and further relief to which he may be justly entitled. He is represented by Jeffrey N. Todd of The Todd Law Group PLLC in Houston.
