Thousands of lives are at risk when a company markets a defective, mass-produced product. We have helped protect the rights of individuals against negligent corporations. Cases have involved a variety of manufactured items, including a defective household appliance that resulted in electrocution, a leaking gas grill propane container that severely burned the user, and a defective towel dispenser that caused the strangulation of a child.

Gomez v. Builders Square

Favorable Verdict Followed By Confidential Settlement

fork liftA 39-year-old woman suffered severe brain injury at a Builders Square store when merchandise from an overhead rack fell and struck her on the head. As a result of the injury and the life-threatening complications which later developed, this wife and mother of three became an invalid. By the time of trial, her medical expenses had mounted to several hundred thousand dollars.

David Perry and Joseph Barrientos represented the woman and her family against Builders Square, Inc. During the trial, evidence showed that the company's practice of stacking merchandise on towering overhead racks had resulted in other similar incidents in which shoppers were injured by falling objects. A Nueces County jury, after a two-and-one-half week trial, found in favor of the plantiff. Builders Square appealed, but our firm was successful in securing a confidential settlement that has enabled the family to obtain the costly medical attention that the victim will need throughout her life.
