HOUSTON – A Milam County man injured while working at a railroad track alleges the negligence of a company's employee caused a piece of metal to injure his leg.
Roberto Mendoza filed a complaint on Sept. 19 in the Harris County District Court against M&M Sales and Service LLC alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 8, 2017, defendant was laying railroad track in Baytown, when an employee of the defendant negligently operated a tamping machine and struck a piece of mental, sending it flying through the air and striking plaintiff's right leg. The plaintiff alleges he underwent surgery that required the installation of hardware in his leg as a result of the event.
The plaintiff holds M&M Sales and Service LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to inspect the work area for any potential hazards and failed to use a guide man while operating the tamping machine.
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 justly entitled. He is represented by Justin Carlisle of Law Offices of Domingo Garcia LLP in Houston.
