HOUSTON – The estate of a man who allegedly died from his injuries
after being robbed in the parking lot of a Houston Kroger is claiming
the grocery store's negligence.
Animesh Solanki and Prashant Solanki, co-executors of the Estate of Arjunlal Solanki; and Jashavanti Solanki filed a complaint on Jan. 14 in Harris County District Court against Kroger Texas LP, alleging negligence.
The plaintiffs allege in their complaint that while leaving the
Kroger grocery store on Jones Road in Houston on Jan. 25, 2019, Arjunlal
Solanki was robbed at gunpoint and pistol-whipped in the head.
The plaintiffs claim he suffered an "intracerebral hemorrhage" that
required emergency medical treatment. They further allege Arjunlal
Solanki's brain injury "ultimately resulted" in his death three months
later. They claim Kroger is negligent for failing to "provide property
security measures" and that the defendant should have known about the
previous "violent and/or similar crimes" that took place in the area
near the store.
The plaintiffs seek monetary relief of more than $1 million, trial
by jury, interest and all other just relief. They are represented by Ty
Gibson and Brett Hill of Gibson Hill Personal Injury in Houston.
