HOUSTON — An electronics company is suing XPO Logistics Freight, Inc., citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
Siemens Industry, Inc. filed a complaint on Jan. 13 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against XPO Logistics Freight that the interstate freight forwarder failed to perform its obligation to protect Siemens's cargo.
According to the complaint, Siemens alleges that on Dec. 16, 2014, the company tendered its cargo to defendant in good order and condition. Due to the defendant's negligence, Siemens's cargo was physically damaged in the total of $41,287. The plaintiff holds XPO Logistics Freight responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to deliver the cargo in the same good order and condition as it was received.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for all damages, pre- and post–judgment interest, costs of court and all other relief as justice and equity allow. The company is represented by Robert C. Oliver and R.M. Sharpe Jr. of Sharpe & Oliver LLP in Houston.
