HOUSTON — An El Paso County man is suing a group involved with fracking operations, alleging he was injured when heavy equipment fell onto him at a job site.
Jorge Dominguez filed a complaint July 8 in Harris County District Court against Baker Hughes, a GE company, Bedrock Petroleum Consultants LLC, Leland Joiner and Allegiance Crane & Equipment LLC, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, Dominguez was working for the defendants May 29 in a fracking operation at the Endeavor Energy Resources wellsite Rosalie G-3 261 R in Martin County. Dominguez says he suffered severe injuries when equipment fell from a forklift and crushed him. The suit says the forklift was negligently operated by a Baker Hughes employee.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants ordered unsafe operations and failed to properly supervise their employees.
Dominguez seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million, trial by jury, interest and all other just relief. He is represented by attorney Kenny Morris of Glasheen, Valles & Inderman LLP in Lubbock.
