Open Manhole Results in Injury, Lawsuit

Comments Off

The Beaumont Recreation Association of Dupont, better known as the BRAD Club, is the target of a lawsuit filed by a Houston woman who fell into an open manhole on the facility’s grounds.

According to the suit Vanessa Colman suffered extreme physical pain, suffering and mental anguish. Colman has incurred considerable medical expenses resulting from the fall, according to the suit.

Colman contends that the BRAD Club is responsible for injuries because it negligently failed to reasonably maintain the premises and failed to warn of the dangerous condition that resulted in her injury.

According to the complaint, Colman is seeking unspecified damages plus costs and any other relief the court deems necessary.
