HOUSTON – A Harris County woman alleges a wet concrete floor at a grocery store caused her to fall.
Martha Fraps filed a complaint on Jan. 10 in the Harris County District Court against Whole Foods Market Inc. alleging premises liability and negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 13, 2017, she was shopping for flowers at defendant's Whole Food Store in Houston when she slipped and fell due to a wet floor. The suit states she "slammed" her cheek into a shopping cart as she fell and lost consciousness after she hit the floor. She alleges she sustained physical injuries which resulted in great pain, mental anguish, embarrassment and medical expenses as a result of the fall.
The plaintiff holds Whole Foods Market Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to clean the water that created the hazardous condition and failed to provide an adequate warning or notice of the existing danger.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million and such other and further relief to which she may be justly entitled. She is represented by Sadi R. Antonmattei-Goitia and Lenzi Sheible of Sullo & Sullo LLP in Houston.
