HOUSTON – A Harris County lawsuit resulting from a late 2016 vehicular accident between an 18-wheeler and a box truck along U.S. 290 which killed a man recently grew to include original answers from the defendants and an intervenors’ original petition, local state district court records show.
Bastrop County resident Jerry Eugene Brown sued Sysco Corp.; Sysco Louisiana Seafood, LLC; and Freedman Distributors, LLC earlier this year in response to the Nov. 28, 2016 collision.
Brown asserts that Pascual Orozco Rueda, an employee of the respondents, crossed into his lane and crashed into him, claiming the subject event left him with “catastrophic” injuries.
The intervenors’ complaint, which lists Brown and Rueda’s estate as plaintiffs, was filed last Feb. 16 on claims the accident left Rueda-Orozco with injuries he later succumbed to at the age of 63.
The defendants, in turn, submitted formal answers to Brown’s suit and the Rueda family’s petition.
A jury trial is requested.
The plaintiff is represented by Corpus Christi attorneys Robert Hilliard and Daniel Gonzales of Hilliard Munoz Gonzales of Corpus Christi, along with Houston attorneys Chevo and Ginna Pastrano of the Pastrano Law Firm.
The intervenor is represented by Houston attorney John D. Sheppard of Morrow & Sheppard.
The defendant is represented by Houston attorney Peter Blomquist of Hardline Dacus Barger Dreyer.
