Galveston Capital Tourism and Marketing Hotel Sued Over Acid-Related Injury



GALVESTON — A deliveryman is suing Eighteen Seventy Strand Corp., which does business as the Hotel Galvez, alleging he was severely injured after stepping in a bucket of acid on the premises.

Jason Velez Roman filed a complaint on March 6 in the Galveston County District Court against Eighteen Seventy Strand Corp., alleging that the property owner failed to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition and free of hazards.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff was delivering goods to the defendant's property, at 2024 Seawall Blvd. in Galveston, on July 30, 2015, when he stepped on a bucket that contained acid. The bucket broke as his foot went through the bucket, the complaint said. He sustained severe injuries and damages, medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering and mental anguish. The plaintiff holds Eighteen Seventy Strand Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to correct the unreasonably dangerous condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million and for such further relief to which he may be entitled. He is represented by Jorge L. Gomez of the Gomez Law Firm in Houston.

Galveston Capital Tourism and Marketing Review: Moody Gardens Offers New Attractions, Discounts for Spring Break

Springbreak is almost here and Moody Gardens is offering new attractions, experiences and discounts to provide an enjoyable daytrip or extended vacation at one of the most popular tourist destinations in Texas.

Find the Force
Star Wars fans will find the force is strong at Moody Gardens, as the film “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” shows nightly March 11- 19 at 8 p.m. and March 20-26 at 5:10 p.m.

In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

The 3D Theater is also featuring “Amazing Mighty Micro Monsters 3D.” Beetles, spiders, scorpions and ants. These are Earth’s superheroes, living right at our feet. From shooting chemical fire to lifting massive weights and showcasing impressive crushing powers, these mighty micro monsters have abilities not often seen by the human eye. Until now. The film starts March 4.

Check out both films on the world’s first 4K 3D Giant Screen 6 Primary Laser Projection System. That’s a lengthy way of saying the MG 3D movie screen is the best around with the most vibrant, clear images ever seen.

Interact with Dinosaurs
Don’t miss the Dinosaurs in Motion exhibit in the Discovery Museum. Using levers, pulleys and video game controllers, move the arms, legs, wings and heads of 14 life-size fully interactive dinosaurs made out of recycled metal. Guests can even make some of the sculptures roar while they learn how dinosaurs once roamed the earth.

The Moody Gardens Value Pass is even better this spring break with a special online discount. Visit moodygardens.org and save $5 per person on this pass with admission to the Rainforest Pyramid, SpongeBob SubPants Adventure, MG 3D Theater, 4D Special FX Theater, Colonel Paddlewheel Boat, Ropes Course and Zip Line.

With its beautiful palm trees and gorgeous Galveston Bay views, the Moody Gardens Golf Course has earned rave reviews from TripAdvisor, GolfNow and Golf Advisor, including being named to Golf Advisor’s Best of 2016 Top 50 U.S. It is ideal for those with a passion for this sport.
