Woman Sues After Chair Collapse at Nail Salon Causing Serious Injuries

On September 14, 2021, a Texas resident filed a complaint in the Harris County District Court against Apple Nails ‘N Spa Inc. (hereinafter “Defendant” and/or “Apple Nails ‘N Spa”). The woman asserts causes of action for premises liability and negligence against the Defendant as a result of a chair collapse incident that occurred at the Apple Nails ‘N Spa’s property. The Defendant owned, operated, and/or managed the Apple Nails ‘N Spa at the time of the incident. The chair collapse caused the woman to fall resulting in serious injuries.

On August 5, 2021, according to the lawsuit, the woman visited a friend at the Apple Nails ‘N Spa, in Humble, Texas. The petition states that, while the woman was sitting in a chair, the chair collapsed beneath her, causing her to fall. As a result of the fall incident, the woman asserts she suffered serious injuries.

In the lawsuit, the woman alleges the Defendant’s negligence at the time of the incident was a proximate cause of the incident. More specifically, the woman claims the Defendant had a duty to exercise the degree of care that a person of ordinary prudence would use to avoid harm to others under the circumstances, similar to those described in her petition, including failure to inspect the premises, failure to make safe a dangerous condition, failing to warn customers of a dangerous condition, and otherwise failing to maintain its premises in a safe condition. The woman claims that the Defendant failed to act as a reasonably prudent premise owner would act in the same or similar situation.

The woman further claims that she was an invitee on the Defendant’s premises, that the Defendant was a possessor of the premises at the time of her injury, that the unsafe conditions made the basis of her lawsuit posed an unreasonable risk, and Defendant knew or should have known that the dangerous condition of the stairs posed an unreasonable risk of harm to her and others.  The woman further asserts that the Defendant’s negligence resulted in her injuries and damages claimed in the lawsuit.

At the time of the incident, the Defendant had a duty to keep and maintain the premises in a safe condition. Due to the condition of the chair, the woman asserts, Apple Nails ‘N Spa premises was not safe for invitees.

The woman seeks monetary relief for damages resulting from medical care and expenses both past and future, physical pain and suffering both past and future, mental anguish, physical impairment, disfigurement, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity, among others.
