HOUSTON – Local attorney Benjamin R. Roberts has filed a personal injury lawsuit against a hospital for a woman who alleges that she was hurt in one of its surgical waiting rooms, recent Harris County District Court records show.
In the 6-page suit filed on Feb. 7 in the 55th District Court, Jennie Graham explains that a piece of metal trim fell and struck her in the head while she was seated in the room at Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center on Apr. 12, 2017.
Purportedly knocked to the ground, Graham adds that she suffered “an open head wound and injuries to her neck, shoulders, and lower back.”
She accuses the hospital of failing “to take reasonable care to reduce or eliminate this risk.”
Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
