HOUSTON – A Harris County woman alleges she was injured while shopping at a Webster store when an item fell on her.
Maria Moran filed a complaint on Nov. 7 in the Harris County District Court against Academy LTD, doing business as Academy Sports & Outdoors, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 23, 2016, she was shopping at defendant's Academy Sports & Outdoors store in Webster when a box fell on her feet. She alleges she sustained serious personal injuries and had to seek medical treatment as a result of the incident.
