GALVESTON – A Dickinson man claims he was injured at a San
Leon grocery store almost two years ago when a vehicle reportedly crashed
through the front of the business.
Marcelino Paredes implicates the store, La Major Grocery
Store, and its proprietor, in a lawsuit filed on Feb. 23 in the Galveston
County 122nd District Court.
Per the complaint, Paredes was a customer at the store on
Apr. 12, 2015. Just as he was standing near the front entrance, the suit says,
a car driven by Debi Brennan slammed into the building and struck him.
“Mr. Paredes was unable to avoid being injured because signs
covering the glass at the front of the store prevented him from seeing the car
as it approached,” court papers explain.
La Major allegedly lacked barriers which the plaintiff
insists would have prevented the incident in question.
Brennan is not a party in the litigation.
Paredes consequently seeks unspecified monetary damages and
a jury trial.
He is represented by attorneys Sarah A. Duckers and Terrie
L. Sechrist of the law firm Sechrist Duckers LLP in Houston.
