GALVESTON – A Galveston County man alleges he was severely injured when he tripped over a sign at a home improvement store.
Russell Culver filed a complaint on Oct. 16 in the Harris County District Court against Home Depot USA Inc. alleging premises liability and negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 5, he tripped and fell over a sign located in the walkway area of defendant's Home Depot store in Galveston. The suit states he landed on the sign and ground, causing the sign to break.
The plaintiff holds Home Depot USA Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly breached its duty of care by both failing to make the dangerous condition safe and by failing to adequately warn plaintiff of the existing danger.
The plaintiff seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but less than $1 million and such other and further relief to which he may be justly entitled. He is represented by Jeffrey N. Todd of The Todd Law Group PLLC in Houston.
