HOUSTON – Wells Fargo Bank is facing a premises liability lawsuit from a Brazoria County man who claims that he suffered a “gruesome” slip and fall, recent Harris County District Court records show.
Alleging he experienced the incident on Jan. 19, 2017 at the defendant’s facility located at 1507 W. Bay Area Blvd. in Houston, Patrick Chaney initiated legal action in the Harris County 113th District Court on Jan. 15.
Chaney says that he entered the bank and spoke with an associate/manager when he slipped, fell backwards, and “bounced his head on the slick and shiny concrete floor.”
“The plaintiff was knocked unconscious for approximately ten (10) minutes,” the suit says.
According to Chaney, “the puddle of water on the slick floor” could have been either covered or blocked off.
Consequently, he seeks unspecified monetary damages.
Fernando F. Valdes of the Valdes Law Firm in Alvin is representing the complainant.
