HOUSTON – A Jefferson County woman alleges there were no warning signs in the area of a hotel lobby to warn of her a wet floor before she fell.
Sherri Hebert filed a complaint on Feb. 13 in the Harris County District Court against Quad Hotels LLC, doing business as Springhill Suites by Marriott; and Marriott International, doing business as Springhill Suites by Marriott Houston Baytown, alleging premises liability and negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 27, 2018, she slipped and fell on a wet substance in the lobby of defendants' Springhill Suites in Baytown. She alleges after the fall, she noticed the floor was wet and that there were no warning signs in the area before her fall.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to cure or eliminate the 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 $200,000 but less than $1 million and such other and further relief to which she may be justly entitled. She is represented by David E. Bernsen and Tanner G. M. Franklin of The Bernsen Law Firm in Beaumont.
