A Jefferson County man is suing his former employer, alleging negligence for injuries he says he sustained on the job.
Thomas Williford filed a lawsuit Oct. 8 in Jefferson County District Court against T. W. Odom Management Services, alleging negligence.
On Jan. 22, 2014, the complaint states, Williford was working at a job site during the course of his employment with Odom Management, when he slipped on a loose piece of flooring and sustained injuries.
The suit says the defendant was negligent in failing to provide a safe place to work, failing to keep premises safe and orderly, failing to provide adequate manpower for the work in question, failing to provide adequate instructions and warnings to employees, and other negligent acts or omissions.
As a result, the plaintiff suffered bodily injuries and sustained physical impairment, pain and mental anguish, loss of earnings and earning capacity, and medical expenses.
Williford seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million, plus interest, attorney fees and court costs. He is represented by attorney Taylor Miller of Reaud, Morgan & Quinn in Beaumont.
Jefferson County District Court case number A-197693.
