GALVESTON – A Galveston County resident alleges she was injured at a home improvement store when pipes fell on her.

Vivian Decuba filed a complaint on June 6 in the Galveston County District Court against The Home Depot Inc. alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 29, she was injured while shopping at defendant’s Home Depot store in Galveston when a bundle of PVC pipes fell off of a fork lift and landed on her. She alleges she sustained serious injuries resulting in medical expenses; pain; suffering and mental anguish; disfigurement and loss of earning capacity as a result of the incident.

The plaintiff holds The Home Depot Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly neither corrected nor warned plaintiff of the unreasonably dangerous condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of no more than $75,000 and all other relief to which she is justly entitled. She is represented by Chris Walker and John Arthur Daspit of Daspit Law Firm in Houston.
