Harris County resident Joseph Lemelle is suing Bo-Mac Contractors for injuries he received re-securing loose freight loaded by the company's employees.

The suit was filed Feb. 21 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the petition, on Feb. 22, 2010, Lemelle picked-up the load at a Bo-Mac facility in Rose City.

He was hauling the freight with his 18-wheller tractor when load became loose forcing Lemelle to attempt to re-secure the load, during which he injured himself.

The suit accuses the defendant of negligently failing to supervise the job site, train its employees and properly inspect and secure the load.

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

Houston attorney Jack Ivey represents him.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. A191-984
