HOUSTON – A Harris County man is seeking more than $1 million in damages after his arm was injured by a machine while working.

Michael Jackson filed a complaint on Oct. 20 in the Harris County District Court against Dicar Inc. and William J. Fowler alleging negligence and other counts.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 21, he was required by defendants to work on a machine that he was not trained for and was dangerously designed. The suit states that suddenly and without warning, the machine closed on his arm, breaking bones and causing nerve damage. He alleges he cannot use his left arm.

The plaintiff holds Dicar Inc. and William J. Fowler responsible because the defendants allegedly negligently placed him on a machine that had caused harm and injuries to others, failed to provide adequate training and failed to provide safe and appropriate equipment for the job.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs of court and such other relief to which he may be entitled. He is represented by Jim Hart, Eloy E. Gaitan and Cesar Tavares of Williams, Kherkher, Hart, Boundas LLP in Houston.
