A woman from Galveston County, Texas has filed a personal injury suit against a BP facility and its manager, alleging that she suffered injuries when a pack of wild dogs chased her through the refinery.
According to the suit she filed on January 22 in Galveston County District Court, contractor Rosalind Moses claims that the August 20 incident at BP’s Texas City refinery caused her to suffer multiple injuries.
Keith Casey, the plant manager, was also named as a defendant.
The suit claims that as Moses was fleeing from the dogs, she fell, resulting in injuries to her neck, back, and shoulder.
The suit alleges negligence on the part of BP for failure to maintain supervision of its crews, train its employees, inspect and maintain the premises, and keep the wild dogs away, warn Moses of a condition of unreasonable risk of harm that it knew about or should have known about, and make the condition safe.
Moses also claims that her mental state was badly affected by the chase and she suffered severe emotional distress.
Moses seeks damages for lost wages and earning capacity, physical pain, mental anguish, and “other medical problems” and seeks a trial by jury.
