HOUSTON – A Galveston County man is suing Comcast after he allegedly tripped over a cable outside of his residence, recent Harris County District Court records show.

John Little’s lawsuit, which was filed on June 28 in the Harris County 281st District Court, claims the mass media company installed the cable in question without his permission.

Little recalls watching TV on the night of July 6, 2017 when a cable disruption occurred, stating he contacted Comcast about the problem.

Comcast purportedly sent STL Installers, LLC to perform work at his home without first notifying him.

The plaintiff further explains that he took out the trash when his right foot “got caught on the cable causing him to trip. The suit says the black cable was exposed.

STL joins Comcast as a co-defendant.

Consequently, Little seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

Mario E. de la Garza and Eric A. Hawley of the law firm Garcia de la Garza, LLP in Houston are representing the complainant.
