HOUSTON – Leah Pyra, of Harris County, blames San Antonio-based H-E-B for a trip and fall she reportedly experienced at the defendant’s store in northwest Houston.
Pyra filed a personal injury lawsuit against H-E-B on Apr. 2 in the Harris County 281st District Court, just three weeks after the incident at 10919 Louetta Rd.
According to the plaintiff, she tripped and fell on “an empty pallet that was sitting in an aisle.” She suffered injuries to her arm and elbow, the original petition says.
Pyra argues that the defendant failed to warn customers about the pallet, stating the aisle she was in “was not clear, safe, and free of tripping hazards.”
She seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
Patrick O’Hara of the O’Hara Law Firm in Houston is representing the complainant.
