UPS driver sues Cypress business owner for alleged fall
A Rosenberg couple is suing a Cypress business owner and her company, alleging that the man slipped on a ramp.
The claims the man slipped outside the business because it was improperly painted with non-slip resistant paint and he broke his leg because of it.
Gregory and Renee Moten filed a lawsuit on Oct. 8 in the Harris County District Court against G Kubosh Mailing Service, doing business as Postnet; Glenda Garrett Kubosh, claiming premises liability.
Gregory Moten claims that on Aug. 16, 2010, while working as a driver for UPS, he went to pick up a package at the defendants business. Upon exiting the business, he tripped on a ramp that he claims was improperly painted under Texas Accessibility Standards.
He claims that because it was raining at the time, the paint caused water to build up, causing him to trip and break his leg.
Renee Moten is claiming that she lost the care, comfort and affection of her husband because of the fall.
The plaintiffs are seeking damages including actual damages, medical costs, physical pain and mental anguish in the past and future, court costs and any other damages they are entitled to by the court.
The Moten's are being represented in the case by Houston attorney Joseph M. Gourrier.
