GALVESTON – A Galveston County man alleges a construction company hired to build a garage performed inadequate work.
Chris Carr filed a complaint on July 8 in the Galveston County District Court against DonRite Construction LLC alleging negligence, breach of contract, breach of warranty and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in June 2015, he entered into a contractual agreement with the defendant for the construction of a garage on his property, but the garage’s construction did not meet the construction specifications and was unsuitable to function as a garage. As a result, he alleges this has caused him to suffer economic damages and mental anguish.
The plaintiff holds DonRite Construction LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to supervise its agents, failed to meet the construction plans, demanded payment for the woefully inadequate construction, threatened to file a lien against the property and abandoned the construction of his garage in August 2015.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks declaration that the lien affidavit filed by defendant be null and void, monetary relief of more than $100,000 but not more than $200,000, including damages of any kind, penalties, costs, expenses, prejudgment and post-judgment interest, attorneys' fees and other relief, at law or in equity, to which he may show himself justly entitled. He is represented by Christopher L. Johnson and Justin M. Kornegay of Lyons & Plackemeier PLLC in Texas City.
