Commercial & Institutional Mechanical is seeking to take the deposition of plaintiff Ralph "Wes" Jordan's medical providers.

As previously reported, Jordan filed suit against Allco LLC on July 22 in Jefferson County District Court, alleging his hand was nearly severed while at the company's premises.

CIM was later added as defendant.

On Dec. 20 CIM filed a notice of intention to take deposition by written questions of the custodian of records for: Dr. Nick Pomonis, Orange Family Clinic and Griffith Family Health & Convenient Care Center, court records show.

The suit states that on April 11 Jordan was at Allco's Port Arthur premises to perform an estimate and bid.

A leaky air conditioner threatened to ruin construction at the premises and Jordan was asked to assist. As he attempted to stop the leak, a shard of glass fell on his arm, nearly severing his hand.

The plaintiff is suing for his alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Beaumont attorney Gilbert T. Adams represents him.

CIM is represented by Karen Bennett, attorney for the Beaumont law firm Germer Gertz.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. D190-564
