HOUSTON – A Harris County woman alleges she injured her knees and back in a fall at a Houston grocery store.

Joyce Morris filed a complaint on Jan. 25 in the Harris County District Court against HEB LP, doing business as Mi Tienda, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 16, 2018, she was walking down the main aisle of defendant's HEB grocery store on Little York Road, Houston when she slipped on a liquid and fell. She alleges she sustained serious injuries to her knees, feet, neck and back in the fall.

The plaintiff holds HEB LP responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to adequate make its premises safe and failed to give adequate warning of the dangerous condition posed by the wet floor.

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 plaintiff may be justly entitled. She is represented by Eduardo J. Garza and Michael E. Pierce of Pierce Skrabanek PLLC in Houston.
