According to the complaint, Ibarra was an invitee of Lewis Food Town on March 5, 2018, at 20851 FM Road 1485, New Caney. The plaintiff says she was walking toward the fruit section of the store when she slipped on a grape that was left on the ground, leading to numerous serious injuries, pain and suffering and medical expenses.
