BEAUMONT – A Port Neches dump truck owner/driver is seeking damages for loss of earnings after he was burned and his dump truck damaged at a construction site.

Gary W. Daigle filed a complaint on Oct. 27 in the Jefferson County District Court against Pamela L. Dodson, individually and doing business as LD Construction, citing property damage.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 10, 2015, he drove his own dump truck at defendant's work site and a substantial volume of hot mix asphalt was dumped into it. He alleges his dump truck sustained substantial damage and he burnt his hand. He claims he was not able to work for approximately 17 weeks and has suffered lost earnings, medical expenses and pain and suffering. 

The plaintiff holds Dodson, individually and doing business as LD Construction, responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to repair his dump truck to the condition it was prior to the hot mix damage.

The plaintiff seeks damages in an amount within the jurisdictional limits of the court, pre- and post-judgment interest, court costs and such other relief that are lawful and equitable. He is represented by Bruce Gregory of Gregory Law Firm in Port Neches.

Jefferson County District Court case number D-200875
