HOUSTON – A customer alleges he was injured at a Houston home improvement store after tripping on a rack.

Lance Sword filed a complaint on Nov. 20 in the Harris County District Court against Home Depot USA Inc., doing business as The Home Depot No. 569, and Mary McLin alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 19, he was an invitee at defendant's store on Market Street in Houston when he tripped on a handheld shopping basket rack while talking to McLin, the store manager. 

The plaintiff holds Home Depot USA Inc. and McLin responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to make the area safe or warn of the dangerous condition on the floor.

The plaintiff seeks monetary relief between $100,000 and $200,000. He is represented by David K. Mestemaker, Norman Straub and Jonathan B. Zumwalt of Mestemaker & Straub in Houston.
