BEAUMONT – A customer of a craft supply store in Beaumont alleges she was injured when she slipped in a puddle in the store.
Millie Stoker filed a complaint on Oct. 25 in the Jefferson County District Court against Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 3, 2017, she was walking towards the back of defendant's store in Beaumont when she slipped and fell in a puddle coming from a pipe under or near a sink. She alleges she sustained severe and painful injuries to her neck, back, right shoulder, right arm, right hip, right knee and right ankle as a result of the fall.
The plaintiff holds Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to repair the pipe that was leaking under the sink and failed to give adequate notice of the existing danger.
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 she may be justly entitled. She is represented by Jonathan C. Juhan and J.J. Bragg in Beaumont.
