HOUSTON – A former employee of Friendly Public Warehouse alleges he was injured because of an unsafe working environment.
Nicholas Gray filed a complaint on July 31 in the Harris County District Court against Friendly Public Warehouse alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 10, 2015, he was injured at defendant's premises while he was in the course and scope of his employment with the defendant. The suit states the plaintiff slipped on oil that one of the defendant's trucks was leaking. He alleges he sustained bruised ribs, a sprained foot and a large internal blood clot. He alleges he was fired by defendant shortly after upon returning to work.
The plaintiff holds Friendly Public Warehouse responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to warn plaintiff of the slipping hazard and failed to adequately clean the area for the safety of its workers.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but not more than $1 million and such other legal, special and equitable relief. He is represented by Cynthia Huerta of Schechter, McElwee, Shaffer & Harris LLP in Houston.
