Texas Grocery Store Sued for Slip and Fall

Comments Off

A man that fell at a Texas Grocery store has filed a slip and fall lawsuit. The man was shopping at a H.E.B. grocery store in September when he allegedly fell and hurt himself.

According to the plaintiff’s original petition, on Sept. 23, 2007, Jones was a customer at the H.E.B. in the 3900 block of East Lucas when the incident occurred. The suit says the fall caused Jones to suffer “extensive injuries” but does not state what those injuries entail.

In his suit, Jones says H.E.B. owed him a duty to inspect its premises and maintain the store in a reasonably safe manner.

The man is asking for damages for all medical expenses, his pain and suffering, and loss of income from his injuries. He claims a foreign object caused him to fall. He is asking for his case to be heard by a jury.
