The Houston Space Center is being sued by a man that alleges he was injured when he slipped and fell on a wet floor.
The suit, filed on December 17, 2010 in Harris County District Court, claims that Houston Space Center was negligent in taking measures to ensure the safety of visitors.
The accident happened in December 2008, while Senny Oommen was visiting the Space Center with his family. He slipped and fell on a wet spot on the floor near the area reserved for taking souvenir photos. Oommen suffered a fractured tibia (shinbone) and as result lost his job because he was unable to perform his work duties.
The suit sees damages which include pain and mental anguish, medical expenses, physical impairment and disfigurement, as well as loss of earning capacity and other damages.
Slip and Falls
Many people are seriously injured each year while in someone else’s home or place of business. Knowing your rights is important. In some states the law is set up to favor the premises owner not the victim. While in other states, the law favors the one who is injured.
