Matthew Todd Gillespie v. Indira Garcia; MIG Campanil Properties, LLC; TPI Sunrise Palms, LLC; and Tarantino Properties, Inc. — Cause No. 2020-DCL-03752

This lawsuit was tried to a jury in Cameron County, Texas the week of September 26, 2022.  The case arose out of a motor vehicle accident between Plaintiff Matthew Todd Gillespie (“Plaintiff”) and Co-Defendant Indira Garcia.  The accident occurred at an intersection located at a shopping plaza parking lot owned and managed by MIG Campanil Properties, LLC, TPI Sunrise Palms, LLC, and Tarantino Properties, Inc (“premises Defendants”).  Plaintiff alleged that the parking lot intersection posed an unreasonable risk of harm because it did not include a traffic control device.  Partner Jaime A. Saenz and associate Luis R. Solis represented the premises Defendants.  The defense focused on Plaintiff’s own negligence as he approached the parking lot intersection in his motorcycle and presented expert testimony that no traffic control device was required at the subject parking lot intersection.  The defense also asserted that Plaintiff could not carry his burden as to his premises liability claims without expert testimony.  After a three-day trial, the jury found that the premises Defendants had been responsible and that Plaintiff had been contributorily negligent, reducing his total award of damages against the premises Defendants to $649,400.00. The premises Defendants promptly filed an appeal to the Thirteenth Court of Appeals.  Appellate review is pending.
