HOUSTON – A woman alleges she fell at a Houston gas station because of spilled gas on the concrete.

Jacqueline Monroe filed a complaint on Jan. 16 in the Harris County District Court against Murphy Express No. 8628 alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 27, 2017, she was walking between the gas pumps at defendant's gas station on North Loop West when she slipped and fell due to a significant amount of gasoline on the concrete. She alleges she suffered injuries that resulted in pain, mental anguish, lost wages and disfigurement. 

The plaintiff holds Murphy Express No. 8628 responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to properly inspect the premises, failed to eliminate the unreasonably dangerous condition and failed to give adequate warning of the existing danger.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $100,000 but less than $200,000 and such other and further relief to which she may be justly entitled. She is represented by Bruce A. Munson of The Munson Law Firm in Houston.
