HOUSTON – A Harris County man alleges he was injured on the job when a plywood surface gave away under him and caused him to fall.

Christopher Citizen filed a complaint on Oct. 16 in the Harris County District Court against The Dow Chemical Co. PLC LLC and DCT Laporte LLC alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 22, 2016, he was employed by PSC and was working at the defendants' place of business. The suit states he was standing on a plywood surface of a tower and the surface collapsed under him, causing him to fall.

He alleges sustained injuries and damages that caused him to suffer pain and suffering, mental anguish, medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.
