HOUSTON – An Elgin Separation Solutions employee alleges he was injured by a conveyor belt while installing a system for a third party.
Kendall Johnson filed a complaint on July 31 in the Harris County District Court against Freeman Exposition LLC and Offshore Technology Conference Inc. alleging negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 19, he was working at defendants' premises setting up a CSI-D4 Turn-Key Waste Management System and was injured when a conveyor belt hit him. The suit states the conveyor belt slipped off of the forks on a forklift operated by the defendants' employee.
He alleges he suffered serious injuries, including a broken tibia and foot, as a result.
The plaintiff holds Freeman Exposition LLC and Offshore Technology Conference Inc. responsible because the defendants' forklift driver failed to properly load and safely operate the forklift and failed to properly secure the load of the forklift.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million and such other and further relief to which he is entitled. He is represented by Arnold Anderson Vickery, Brian B. Winegar and Fred Shepherd of Vickery & Shepherd LLP in Houston.
