GALVESTON – A Louisiana rigger alleges he was injured while working on an oil platform.

Lorenza Jackson filed a complaint on March 24 in Galveston County District Court against Chevron USA Inc., citing negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 27, 2015, he was working on the defendant's platform in the Gulf of Mexico as an employee of Danos & Curole. He alleges he sustained body injuries while performing his duties when he caught his foot in equipment on the platform, causing him to fall.
