HOUSTON – A Harris County man alleges he was injured at a home improvement store when lumber fell on him.
Richard Holden filed a complaint on Nov. 8 in the Harris County District Court against Lowe's Cos. Inc., Lowe's Home Centers Inc. and Lowe's Home Centers LLC alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 31, 2016, the plaintiff was a business invitee at defendants' home improvement store No. 0555 in Houston and was injured when stacked two-by-four pieces of lumber became unstable and fell on him. He alleges he sustained injuries to his left arm and shoulder as a result.
The plaintiff holds Lowe's Cos. Inc., Lowe's Home Centers Inc. and Lowe's Home Centers LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to install adequate anti-tip protection devices at the lumber display.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million and such other and further relief to which he may be justly entitled. He is represented by Terry Bryant and Brooksie Bonvillain of Terry Bryant PLLC in Houston.
