HOUSTON — A Houston woman is suing Dillard's, alleging she was injured due to the negligence of management.

Linda Johnson filed a complaint Aug. 21 in Harris County District Court against Dillard's Inc., doing business as Dillard Department Stores Inc., alleging negligence.

According to the complaint on Aug. 27, 2017, Johnson was a guest of Dillard's, at 4925 Westheimer Road, Houston. The suit alleges she tripped over a small stool in one of the aisles, causing her to strike the ground and sustain permanent and painful bodily injuries, which led to mental anguish and medical expenses.
