Local family files lawsuit against Mo-Vac Service Company

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - A Laredo family is suing a trucking company for allegedly causing a spill of toxic chemicals on their property.

David and Maria Hinojosa filed a lawsuit on Tuesday in District Court against Mo-Vac Service Company.

The lawsuit centers around an incident that occurred back in late September, when a Mo-Vac Truck spilled a mixture of chemicals onto the plaintiffs property and home.

In the lawsuit, the couple says that they have suffered physical and emotional injuries and that their property has depreciated in value due to the chemicals.

The family is seeking one million dollars in damages.

For now, a judge agreed to motion to keep the company from disposing of any of the chemicals and soil removed during the clean up.
