HOUSTON —A man who rented a truck from Home Depot claims the store was aware of the vehicle's defective tailgate that swung down and hit him and caused injuries.
Markolas Moore filed a complaint March 12 in the Harris County District Court against Home Depot U.S.A., Inc., alleging negligence.
Moore rented a vehicle from Home Depot on March 13, 2018. He alleges that the tailgate on the rented truck was not secured and that when he pulled over to try and secure the tailgate, it swung down forcefully and hit him in the knees. Moore claims Home Depot knew of the dangerous issue with the truck but failed to warn him of the danger.
Moore seeks monetary relief of $150,000, interest, trial by jury and all other just relief. He is represented by Alex Udorah and Dominick Dunlap of The Law Office of Alex Udorah in Houston.
