Craig Odom, a Texas man, has filed a personal injury suit against Total Petrochemicals USA after he allegedly sustained personal injuries during the course of his employment with one of the company’s subcontractors.
According to Odom, he was employed by Total Petrochemical subcontractor A.S.G. when he sustained a personal injury that was severe and disabling on September 30, according to the claim he filed in the Jefferson County, Texas District Court on September 29.
According to Odom, the “serious and permanent” injuries he sustained because of “a dangerous condition” have caused him physical pain, lost earnings, physical impairment, and mental anguish “of an almost incalculable nature.” The complaint says that he has also incurred medical costs.
According to the suit, Total Petrochemicals should have been aware of the condition and the likelihood of injuries taking place.
After the incident occurred, Odom has received benefits from workers’ compensation and medical benefits, but his employer’s workers’ comp carrier will benefit from the suit, according to the suit.
Odom alleges negligence on the part of Total Petrochemicals for its failure to properly inspect the premises and detect the dangerous condition, failure to remedy the condition, failure to provide a safe workplace, failure to warn of the condition’s existence, and failure to provide proper supervision, according to the suit.
