HOUSTON – A machine operator is seeking more than $1 million after he was injured while working at a Houston location.
Juan Torres filed a complaint on Jan. 29 in the Harris County District Court against Allied Fitting LP alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 31, 2017, he was seriously injured while working in the course and scope of his employment with defendant. He alleges he was operating a machine that was missing its protective doors and that a metal strand severely lacerated his legs. He alleges he is still under a doctor's care and has not returned to gainful employment.
The plaintiff holds Allied Fitting LP responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide a safe working environment and adequate assistance and failed to properly train and supervise its employees.
The plaintiff seeks monetary relief of not less than $1 million and such other legal and equitable relief. He is represented by Carlos Hughes Jr. of The Hughes Law Firm in Houston.
