BEAUMONT – There were no “Beware of falling toys” warning signs the day Jessica Gooden was shopping at Target, according to a recently filed lawsuit.
Seeking around $75,000 in damages, Gooden filed suit against Target on March 5 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to her lawsuit, Gooden was shopping at Target on Nov. 22. She had bent over to look at some “L.O.L.” toys when “a large toy fell down from the top shelf and struck” her in the back of the head, causing “serious and permanent bodily injuries.”
In addition to negligently failing to maintain its premises in a safe condition, Gooden alleges Target negligently failed to inform her of the dangerous condition.
She is suing for her past and future mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement, lost wages and medical expenses.
Daspit Law Firm attorney Jared Capps represents her.
Judge Mitch Templeton, 172nd District Court, has been assigned to the case.
Case No. E-203456
