HOUSTON – A former employee for The Methodist Hospital alleges she was injured on the job and not compensated.
Sandra Smith filed a complaint on Dec. 26 in the Harris County District Court against The Methodist Hospital alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the defendant from 1981 to 2017. She alleges on Dec. 24, 2016, she injured her neck, right shoulder and body while lifting an I.V. pump. The plaintiff alleges she has paid for all of her medical treatment and was not compensated.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant in an amount of more than $1 million, with interest, costs and such other and further relief to which she may be justly entitled.
