HOUSTON – A Harris County man alleges he was injured while working on a harbor tug because of an unsafe working environment.
Elias Ronstadt filed a complaint on Jan. 25 in the Harris County District Court against G & H Towing Co. and Bay-Houston Towing Co. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 26, 2018, he was working as an employee of G&H on Bay-Houston's harbor tug, the M/V Philip K. He alleges he was injured when an aircraft tire fell on his left knee and he has not been released to return to work.
The plaintiff holds G & H Towing Co. and Bay-Houston Towing Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide safe place to work and failed to provide adequate drilling gear.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages, attorney's fees, costs and such other and further relief to which he may be justly entitled. He is represented by Charles F. Herd Jr. of Herd Law Firm PLLC in Houston.
