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.
