HOUSTON – A Harris County man is seeking more than $1 million after he was electrocuted while working.

Dennis Brubaker filed a complaint on June 20 in the Harris County District Court against Schlumberger Technology Corp. alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 1, the defendant was constructing a rig with the plaintiff's employer and did not cut power from the rig and the project. The plaintiff alleges while working, electricity flowed back from the rig and electrocuted him. He alleges he suffered injuries to his neck, shoulder and arms and is unable to work. 

The plaintiff holds Schlumberger Technology Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide adequate training, failed to cut power where he was working and failed provide warnings associated with the task.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million. He is represented by Jim Hart, Eloy E. Gaitan and Cesar Tavares of Williams, Kherkher, Hart, Boundas LLP in Houston.
