HOUSTON – A Harris County woman has filed a personal injury lawsuit against a west Houston establishment that hosted her family reunion last year, claiming she sustained a serious leg injury while roller skating.
Chalondria James’s suit targeting The International Funplex Sports Bar and Grill, LLC, doing business as Fun Planet, accuses the business of failing to monitor its roller skating rink, which is a requirement listed in the 1980 edition of Roller Skating Rink Safety Standards published by the Roller Skating Rink Operators Association of America.
James says that she slipped “on an unknown liquid” on the rink floor and “severely” fractured her left knee and lower knee. According to the plaintiff, the liquid was from beverages some patrons not affiliated with her brought onto the rink.
The incident reportedly caused James to undergo multiple surgeries.
Consequently, the plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
She is represented by Robert W. Berleth of the law firm Berleth & Associates, PLLC in Houston.
