GRETNA – A local grocery store chain is being sued by a woman who claims she was seriously injured in a fall on their premises.
Charlene Lacoste Labrano filed suit against Rouse's Enterprises LLC, Rouse Land Co. and their insurer in the 24th Judicial District Court on Jan. 8. Labrano claims she was shopping at the Rouse's located at 3711 Power Blvd. in Metairie when she fell in one of the store's aisles. The plaintiff alleges she received severe and disabling injuries in the fall.
The defendant is accused of creating a dangerous condition on its premises, failing to timely remediate the hazard, failing to warn patrons of the hazard, failing to maintain a reasonably safe place for customers, failing to properly maintain premises, failing to properly train and supervise employees and failing to take steps to avoid the accident.
An unspecified amount of damages is sought for pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional stress, loss of enjoyment of life, medical expenses, economic loss and permanent disability.
Labrano is represented by James F. Flinn of the New Orleans-based Voorhies Law Firm.
The case has been assigned to Division P Judge Lee V. Faulkner.
Case no. 722-724.
