HOUSTON – A Travis County woman asserts that she suffered a trip and fall at a local airport last year after being denied access to a wheelchair.
Harris County District Court records show that Maria Vivar Moya brought a lawsuit against AirServ Corp. on Jan. 7 in the 125th District Court.
According to Moya, AirServ failed to provide her a wheelchair following her arrival at George Bush Intercontinental Airport from Germany on Jan. 30, 2017.
The plaintiff “was forced to walk in the airport unaided” to the immigration area, and she stepped onto an escalator, she tripped and fell, the suit says.
Moya reportedly suffered injuries to her head, neck, hip, shoulder, and other parts of her body.
Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
She is represented by the Daspit Law Firm in Houston.
