City of Port Arthur Sued for Slip-and-Fall
The last thing you expect when walking into a business, office or other establishment is to suffer an injury as a result of negligence. Poor lighting, spilled fluids, uneven surfaces and other obstructions can put you one step closer to very serious pain that could create a great burden in your life. For a woman in Port Arthur, this unfortunate circumstance became all too real.
Avis W. Lamotte filed a lawsuit against Port Arthur Elderly Housing Corp., O. W. Collins Apartments and the City of Port Arthur after she allegedly suffered injuries during her visit for a job interview. The claim alleges Lamotte slipped on a liquid, sustained serious injury and is now seeking damages of over $200,000 but less than $1 million. The lawsuit accuses the defendants of failing to:
