HOUSTON – A butcher at a Houston store alleges his employer's failure to provide safe equipment caused two of his fingers to be severed.
Juan Espinosa filed a complaint on May 29 in the Harris County District Court against LMMM Houston No. 37 LTD alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 12, 2017, he was working at defendant's LMMM store No. 37 in Houston and was operating a band saw to cut meat and was injured when his right finger and middle finger were severed.
The plaintiff holds LMMM Houston NO. 37 LTD responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide a saw with a safety device that would keep his hand and fingers away from the saw and failed to provide a safe working environment.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but less than $1 million and such other and further relief to which he may be entitled. He is represented by Justin Carlisle of Law Offices of Domingo Garcia LLP in Houston.
