A Galveston County man has sued H-E-B after he claims he fainted inside a Rediclinic at an unnamed store.
A Galveston County man has filed a lawsuit against H-E-B and the grocer's in-store clinic, RediClinic, after he said he was injured while having blood drawn.
The suit, filed April 5 in Harris County Court by Raymundo Calvillo-Luna, does not specify the H-E-B store where the alleged incident occurred or the date of the incident.
Calvillo alleges in his petition that he had blood drawn as part of a physical at the H-E-B Rediclinic.

"On the third unsuccessful attempt to draw blood, Calvillo fainted, fell to the floor, struck his head on the concrete floor, and had a grand mal seizure," the petition states. "He was taken by ambulance to St. John's Methodist Hospital and was diagnosed with a concussion and post-concussion syndrome."
Calvillo claims the clinic should not have allowed him to remain standing up while the technician drew his blood. He also claims the clinic failed to diagnose or treat the alleged head injury.
Calvillo seeks between $200,000 and $1 million in compensation, according to the petition.
H-E-B declined to comment on this pending litigation.
