Slip-and-fall incident at mall leaves woman injured

When a Texas resident is injured in a public place, a common response is to find where to place blame for the injury. In many cases, this action is appropriate, and steps should be taken to hold parties accountable for possible negligence. This could be the property owner and/or a party in possession or control of the premises. A recent Harris County slip-and-fall accident resulted in injuries and a lawsuit has been filed.

A woman was shopping at the Willowbrook Mall in May, 2015. According to a complaint filed in the Harris County District Court, she fell on a puddle of water near the beer coolers. She needed medical care and treatment for her personal injuries.

The woman contends that that the mall did not provide a reasonably safe place to shop and had not taken appropriate measures to prevent customer injuries. Also, she faults the mall for not correcting a dangerous condition or warning customers about it. She has asked for a jury trial and is seeking an award for court costs, all damages and other relief.

As in this or any Texas slip-and-fall incident, someone deserves to be represented so that the best outcome can be achieved. An experienced personal injury attorney will help review evidence and evaluate the situation before developing the strongest case possible. A reputable lawyer can work with clients to obtain a favorable outcome in the complaint and receive compensation that will offset medical expenses and provide damages for emotional stress or loss of job.
