Shopper sues flea market over trip and fall

By John Suayan | Mar 14, 2019


HOUSTON – A Harris County woman’s visit to an east Houston flea market last year ended in a trip and fall, according to a state district personal injury lawsuit.

Annette Jimenez filed the suit against A-1 Flea Market, Inc. on Mar. 11 in the Harris County 234th District Court, claiming the incident took place at 717 Maxey Rd. on Jan. 28, 2018.

Jimenez recalls walking in the entry way when she tripped and fell “as a result of a defective and dangerous (condition.”

“There were no warning signs present or any other signs of caution near the area where the incident occurred,” court papers say.

The plaintiff asserts that she suffered “severe” injuries to her neck, back, head, right knee, left shoulder, upper arm, and wrist. She “was not aware of the defective and dangerous condition of the entry way,” the original petition says.

Consequently, Jimenez seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

The law firm Bronston Legal PC in Houston is representing the complainant.
