Sharona George v. Brookshire Grocery Company d/b/a Super 1 Foods
Recently, Trey Zeigler successfully defended his client, Brookshire Grocery Company, in a lawsuit filed by Sharona George. Ms. George claimed she slipped and fell in a red liquid causing her debilitating injuries. Trey convinced the Court that plaintiff did not meet her burden of proof in showing that the store was negligent. Rather, as Trey showed a third party customer spilled the liquid on the floor minutes before Ms. George’s incident, and store employees acted promptly and reasonably in cleaning the substance. As a result, the trial court returned a defense verdict absolving Trey’s client of all liability.
