HOUSTON – A patron of a Houston restaurant is seeking at least $3 million dollars after allegedly falling because of a wet floor.
Vernon Gonzalez filed a complaint on Nov. 13 in the Harris County District Court against Javier Huerta, doing business as Taqueria El Dorado, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 28 he was a guest at defendant's restaurant when he fell in an area that was recently mopped. He alleges he sustained serious injuries that resulted in pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement and loss of earnings as a result of the fall.
The plaintiff holds Huerta responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to place warning signs around the wet floor.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief between $3 million and $5 million and all other relief to which she is entitled. He is represented by Mathew Mendoza and David A. Garcia of Garcia, McMillan Law Firm PLLC in Houston.
