Cypress woman sues builder over knee, back injuries
A Cypress woman is suing over claims she sustained serious injuries after a home builder created a hazard in her side yard.
Cypress resident Marla Critchlow filed a lawsuit on Oct. 3 in Harris County District Court against Beazer Homes, citing negligence.
Critchlow says that on March 13, 2010, she was knocked unconscious and sustained serious injuries while working in her yard, located in the 20000 block of Trinity Trails in Cypress. According to the brief, she was cutting grass when she backed into a hole, two feet wide and two feet deep, the defendants created on her property.
Critchlow claims her left leg fell into the hole, causing her to fall back on her rear and hit her head on a concrete slab, resulting in a ruptured disk and torn knee ligaments.
Critchlow is seeking damages and court costs. She is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Michael Davenport.
Harris County District Court Case No. 2011-59302.
