A Silsbee man who sued Trans-Global Solutions after a co-worker dropped a piece of equipment on his foot has non-suited the company.

Joseph Latulas filed suit Aug. 5 in the Jefferson County District Court against TGS, a national railroad contractor with offices in Beaumont and Houston.

Court records show Latulas filed a motion for non-suit on March 10, stating he no longer wished to pursue his claims against TGS.

That same day, the order was granted, dismissing TGS without prejudice.

In his suit, Latulas says he was injured on July 1 while working near equipment he claims was defective. The unsafe condition caused a coworker to drop another piece of equipment on his foot.

The injury, the plaintiff contends, was due, in whole or in part, to violations of federal statutes and regulations. The injury the plaintiff sustained is permanent and has had a serious affect on his health and well-being.

The plaintiff sought a judgment against the defendant that compensated him for his physical pain, lost earnings and benefits in the past and future, physical impairment in the past and future, medical expenses and disfigurement.

David P. Wilson of Provost Umphrey LLP in Beaumont represents Latulas

Case No. A195-940
