Murr Yanochik, P.L.L.C. Settles Service Station-18 Wheeler Accident and Fire Case

Houston, Texas, September 16, 2014 – Murr Yanochik, P.L.L.C. recently successfully prosecuted claims involving an 18-wheeler tractor trailer's damaging a CITGO service station near La Porte, Texas. The Firm represented the owners of the CITGO gas station, whose business abruptly shut down when an 18-wheeler tractor trailer damaged their building, resulting in a fire, power outage and loss of sales over several days.

On August 30, 2013, an 18-wheeler tractor trailer stopped in a nearby parking lot. When the driver piloting the vehicle attempted to turn around, the tractor trailer tore through high-voltage power lines traversing the parking lot leading into the CITGO service station and convenience store. As the vehicle continued driving through the power lines, it pulled down a 40-foot utility power pole, a weather vane, eventually starting a fire in the CITGO service station itself.

On behalf of the owners, Murr Yanochik, P.L.L.C. filed suit in the 127th Judicial District Court of Harris County, Texas, asserting claims of trespass to real property, trespass to personal property, nuisance, negligence, negligence per se and gross negligence. Once all of the defendants were served and brought before the Court, the Defendants quickly settled on terms favorable to the CITGO service station owners.
