HOUSTON – A Van Zandt County man is seeking more than $1 million in damages after a fall on equipment at a wellsite.
David Ronald Alexander Jr. filed a complaint on Nov. 30, 2017, in the Harris County District Court against Applied Machinery Corp. citing products liability, negligence and breach of warranty.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 7, 2016, he was injured when he fell through an engineered opening on a piece of equipment that was manufactured by defendant while working at a wellsite near Franklin. He claims he sustained injuries and damages resulting in physical impairment, pain and suffering, medical expenses and loss of earning capacity.
The plaintiff holds Applied Machinery Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly designed a defective product and that these defects made the product unreasonably dangerous.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million and all other appropriate relief. He is represented by N. Eric Cooper of The Cooper Law Firm in Longview and J. Kevin Carey of Carey Law Firm PLLC in Fort Worth.
