HOUSTON – A woman alleges an energy company's failure to implement safety protocols caused her broken leg.
Yvette Ramirez filed a complaint on June 4 in the Harris County District Court against Triple Five Energy Resources LLC alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was testing the defendant's wells for leaks at its Baytown facilities while working as an employee of ABC Nitrogen Services on April 10, 2017. She alleges the defendant's employee opened a valve that pressurized the line, causing it to move and strike the plaintiff. The suit states she sustained severe injuries, including but not limited to a broken tibia and fibula, as a result.
The plaintiff holds Triple Five Energy Resources LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to develop and implement proper safety protocols, failed to provide safe instrumentalities and failed to properly train and manage its employees.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million and such other and further relief to which she is entitled. She is represented by Kelly M. Woods of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz in Houston.
