Service call ends in lawsuit
Houston residents, Jerry Hibbler and his family, traveled through the Teague area on June 1 and ended up stranded when their RV had mechanical difficulties. Hibbler’s experiences resulted in a lawsuit against McAlpine RV Services, which took place in the court of Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 with Debra Hamilton presiding.
Hibbler said. “My RV threw a belt and broke a hub. I pulled off to the side of the road and I called roadside assistance. This was on a Friday night when Claytons RV Service came calling. He reviewed the damage and turned in the invoice for around $1,500. I thanked him and paid him $320. That was $125 for the call out and the rest for labor that was understood to come off my bill upon completion. I was pulling my jeep and was on my way to Dallas so we understood that when I was there I could pick up his parts at this business in town. We both left with this understanding.”
