HOUSTON — Targa Midstream is facing a lawsuit filed by a man who suffered broken bones when his ship struck one of their caissons.
William Wajdak filed a complaint Dec. 24 in the Harris County District Court against Targa Midstream Services LLC and others alleging negligence and gross negligence.
Wajdak was traveling to a chemical plant on the Houston Ship Channel while working for Texas Mooring. During the nighttime on Dec. 25, 2017 the ship collided with a caisson owned by Targa that contained no visible markers or lighting.
