HOUSTON – A woman alleges a janitorial and maintenance services company failed to warn of a substance on a store's floor that caused her to fall.
Paula Lange filed a complaint on Jan. 7 in the Harris County District Court against Diversified Maintenance Systems LLC alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 30, 2018, she was at Academy Sports and Outdoors store No. 240 when she was caused to fall due to a foreign substance on the floor and was injured. The suit states the defendant was providing maintenance on the floor at the time of the fall and allegedly created a dangerous condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but less than $1 million and such other and further relief to which she may be justly entitled. She is represented by Clyde J. Jay Jackson III of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz in Houston.
