A Texas woman was seriously injured when a vehicle crashed through a Fiesta Mart’s glass entry doors. In a lawsuit filed by The Ammons Law Firm, the suit alleges that the crash could have been prevented had the shopping center installed safety bollards in front of the store’s entrance.
In the lawsuit, it is alleged that Fiesta Mart was negligent in failing to install safety bollards or erecting other guards in front of its glass entry doors to prevent motor vehicles from entering the store premises. Further, the lawsuit names the operator of the shopping center in the lawsuit for ignoring their legal duty of ordinary care to invitees on their property to protect them from dangers posed by vehicles that may crash into the entryway of their stores. It is further alleged that the operator of the shopping center breached its duties of care by failing to design, construct, and maintain a properly protected storefront entry.
The Ammons Law Firm has a nationwide personal injury practice focusing on tire defects, truck accidents, rollovers, consumer protection and product liability, catastrophic injury, wrongful death, post-collision fires, seatbelt defects, airbag defects, plant explosions, and policyholder litigation against insurance companies.
The Fiesta Mart in question did not have safety bollards (pictured below) installed in
front of its storefronts, neglecting the safety of pedestrians, customers,
and employees in the event of a motor-vehicle crash.
