A Louisiana man brought a lawsuit against a company for alleged liability in a 2014 incident.

Todd J. Oubre filed a complaint against Schlumberger Limited, Schlumberger Well Services, and Schlumberger Technology Corp., with headquarters in Dallas and principal place of business in Texas, in the Galveston Division of the Southern District of Texas on May 15, claiming negligence in May 2014.

The plaintiff was a trucking professional under contract with the defendants for services at their Louisiana site at 101 Southwood Drive, Houma, on or about May 15, 2014. The suit states that Oubre sustained injuries when a forklift under the defendants’ control crashed into his vehicle, an 18-wheeler truck.

According to the suit, the Schlumberger consortium was responsible for the plaintiff’s injuries as it was in exclusive control of the work site where the accident occurred. Oubre cites the defendants with gross negligence.

Alleging severe pain, suffering, and mental anguish; lost wages and earning capacity; impairment in everyday activities; disfigurement; medical expenses, and property damage, the plaintiff seeks compensation excess of $75,000 for damages; pre- and post-judgment interest; attorney’s fees; expenses, and costs.

He is represented by Marcus Spagnoletti of Spagnoletti & Co. in Houston.
