A Texas woman has filed a premises liability lawsuit against a Fort Bend grocery store, claiming she sustained serious injuries while shopping.
According to Harris County District Court documents, Edilberta Gonzalez accuses Cox’s Foodarama of Houston of negligence. Gonzalez says that on July 17, 2009 she sustained serious injuries while shopping at Foodrama Store No. 21. The lawsuit claims Gonzalez slipped and fell on a liquid substance “carelessly” left on the floor.
Gonzalez is asking the court for an unspecified amount of damages, in addition to court costs.
Officials at Foodarama declined to comment on the lawsuit, saying the company had not yet reviewed the complaint.
