Summary Judgment Secured in Houston Slip and Fall Death Case

Hartline Barger was successful in getting a Harris County premises liability death case dismissed against the Houston Country Club.

This lawsuit arises from an alleged fall that occurred in the early morning hours of December 12, 2018 at the Houston Country Club. Plaintiff alleges that he was working as part of an overnight cleaning crew at the club when he allegedly fell and hit his head on two pipes that were on the kitchen floor, which resulted in his death later at the hospital. Plaintiff’s wife brought suit individually and as the representative of her husband’s estate against the Houston Country Club under theories of premises liability, negligence, wrongful death, and survival causes of action. She was seeking over $1 million in damages.

Hartline Barger was successful in obtaining a complete dismissal of the Houston Country Club from this case on July 23, 2020, after it had filed a motion for summary judgment.
