BEAUMONT – A Jefferson County man claims he was injured on the job as the result of an allegedly dangerous condition.
Michell Gillete filed a complaint on July 14 in the Jefferson County District Court against Veolia ES Industrial Services Inc., et al. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 11, while working at the defendant's Veolia facility as an employee of Newtron, he sustained severe injuries as a result of a dangerous condition, resulting in physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of earnings, and medical expenses. The plaintiff holds Veolia ES Industrial Services Inc., et al. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to recognize and correct a dangerous condition, failed to warn invitees, and failed to perform proper maintenance and repairs of its equipment.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but not more than $1,000,000, plus costs of court, pre- and post-judgment interest, and for such other relief to which he may be justly entitled. He is represented by B. Adam Terrell of Weller, Green, Toups & Terrell LLP in Beaumont.
