Posted on Friday, April 15th, 2011 at 10:07 am    

A woman filed a premises liability lawsuit against a Pasadena Walmart, claiming she was injured in a slip and fall accident at the store.

According to Harris County District Court documents, Pasadena-resident Nora Hernandez filed the premises liability lawsuit on March 30 against Wal-Mart Stores. The lawsuit alleges negligence.

According to the complaint, Hernandez was seriously injured on April 17, 2009 while she was shopping at Walmart store no. 2724, located at 1107 Shaver St. in Pasadena. Hernandez, who was pregnant at the time of the accident, claims she slipped and fell on a pool of water that had gathered on the floor. The lawsuit says the fall caused Hernandez to injure her back, knee, and abdomen.

The lawsuit contends the store’s employees knew of the water and did not act in a timely fashion to clean it. Hernandez is asking the court for an undisclosed amount for actual damages and court costs.
