HOUSTON — A Harris County widow is suing a granite and marble business, alleging negligence during inventory caused fatal injuries to her husband.
Sejal Adeshara, individually and as next friend of K.A., filed a complaint March 24 in Harris County Circuit Court against Superior Granite and Marble by Vivaldi LLC and Lazaro Cabrera, alleging they failed to take reasonable and appropriate safety precautions that would have prevented the untimely death of Jay Adeshara.
According to the complaint, on in Dec. 29, 2016, Adeshara's husband died due catastrophic injuries when two 400-pound granite slabs fell off a vehicle and crushed him. The suit says, Cabrera, while in the course of his employment with Superior Granite, attempted to load and secure the granite slabs into his vehicle but both slabs fell off the vehicle and onto Jay Adeshara. Sejal Adeshara says she has suffered mental anguish, loss of earnings and medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide necessary personnel, loading equipment, and securing equipment for the loading task and failed to follow OSHA standards with regard to loading and securing products.
Sejal Adeshara seeks trial by jury, punitive damages of more than $1 million, funeral expenses, costs of suit, pre- and post-judgment interest and all other just relief. She is represented by attorneys Anthony G. Buzbee and Ryan Loya of The Buzbee Law Firm in Houston.
