GALVESTON – A Galveston County resident alleges the owner of the property where he resided failed to maintain the stairs and walkways in a reasonably safe condition.

Graylan Elder filed a complaint on June 26 in the Galveston County District Court against Pedro Aguiar alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 4, he was injured when he fell while walking down the front porch stairs on the defendant’s property because the step gave way. He alleges he suffered serious bodily injuries resulting in to inform, pain, suffering and mental anguish, physical impairment and disfigurement, lost wages and loss of earning capacity as a result of the fall. 

The plaintiff holds Aguiar responsible because the defendant allegedly should have known of the unreasonably dangerous condition and did not correct it or to inform him about it.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but no more than $1 million and such other and further relief, to which he may be justly entitled. He is represented by John Arthur Daspit and Lee S. Perez of Daspit Law Firm in Houston.
