A man from Mississippi has filed suit against his employer, alleging that he sustained personal injuries while working on one of its vessels.
In a suit filed in the Galveston Division of the Southern District of Texas on December 1 naming Ensco Offshore Co. as a defendant, Travis Dion Chambliss alleges that he was injured while aboard the Ensco 82 on May 27.
Chambliss said that a pallet that was being lifted fell on him, causing injuries to his neck and head.
The suit alleges negligence on the part of Ensco and claims the vessel was not seaworthy.
Chambliss seeks damages in excess of $75,000 for his injuries plus mental anguish and loss of wages.
