Houston Law Firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend Will Host A Press Conference At 2pm On Monday, August 5 To Discuss Recently-Filed Personal Injury Suit

(Houston, TX) On behalf of Yvonne Herndon, her husband and her children, Houston lawyers Benny Agosto, Jr., Daniel D. Horowitz III, and Brant J. Stogner have filed suit seeking full compensation for the serious, life-changing injuries Mrs. Herndon received after being thrown from a golf cart at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo earlier this year.  Mrs. Herndon has been hospitalized and in a coma since the incident on February 25th.

In addition, the Houston personal injury lawyers are seeking full compensation for the injuries sustained by Mr. Herndon in witnessing his wife’s catastrophic injury and on behalf of Mrs. Herndon’s children who have since been robbed of the care and companionship of their mother.

Mrs. Herndon and her husband attended the Toby Keith concert that was put on in conjunction with the 2013 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. After the show ended, the couple utilized the golf cart transportation service to return to their vehicle; Mrs. Herndon was in the front seat with the driver and Mr. Herndon was in the row behind her. The driver, operating on behalf of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, made a sudden, unexpected left turn, ejecting Mrs. Herndon from the cart, head-first onto the pavement of the Reliant Stadium parking lot. Mrs. Herndon suffered a serious closed head injury as a result of the trauma.

The attorneys are seeking to hold the driver, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the owner and lessee of the golf cart, and the original manufacturers of the golf cart responsible for the errors, omissions, and negligence that caused Mrs. Herndon to suffer a catastrophic head injury.   The subject golf cart lacked basic and common safety features, including seat belts, and proper hand-held restraints to prevent involuntary ejection, which is and has been the leading cause of injury by these products.
