Diner takes Vietnamese restaurant to court over head injury caused by falling television

By John Suayan | Jan 2, 2019

HOUSTON – A Harris County man claims that he sustained a head injury more than a year ago while eating at a local Vietnamese restaurant.

Steven Remmers brought a personal injury suit against Pho Binh Restaurant, Inc.; DN, Inc.; and proprietor Daniel Nguyen in the Harris County 234th District Court on Dec. 28, 2018.

Per Remmers, he was dining with his wife and two friends at the defendants’ eatery on Aug. 25, 2017 “when a large screen television fell off the wall from above his head and fell directly onto his head and neck region.”

Set up by the restaurant owner’s brother-in-law, the original petition says, “the mount tore out an entire section of drywall since it was not properly mounted into studs of support.”

Remmers asserts that the incident caused him to suffer “persistent dizziness, frequent headaches, light sensitivity, and difficulty focusing.”

Consequently, the plaintiff seeks more than $1 million in damages.

He is represented by Benny Agosto, Jr. of the law firm Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz in Houston.
