Woman sues Cy-Fair gas station after allegedly slipping on wet floor
A woman is suing the owners of a Cy-Fair gas station where she allegedly fell and hurt herself.
Theresa Ratliff filed the lawsuit Feb. 25 in Harris County District Court against Saab Petroleum 529 Ltd. Ratliff accuses Saab Petroleum of negligence for allegedly failing to clean up a spill at its gas station on FM 529 Road.
Ratliff says she was inside the gas station in May 2010. Ratliff says water had apparently leaked from a beverage container causing the floor to be wet. She says she slipped on the water and fell, causing her to receive serious injuries.
Ratliff argues Saab Petroleum was negligent in failing to keep the floor clear of any dangers and in failing to warn of the wet area. She is asking for an unspecified amount of money to compensate for her injuries, mental anguish, physical pain and suffering, medical expenses, impairment, disability and loss of income along with court costs and interest.
Attorney Justin W. Carlisle with the law firm of Young & Husain is representing Ratliff.
