HOUSTON, TEXAS — An injured employee is suing a scaffold company, alleging its negligence led to injuries for the plaintiff.
Eric Belton of Harris County filed a complaint Feb. 23, in the Harris County District Court against Excel Modular Scaffold Inc. alleging failure to provide a safe work environment.
According to the complaint, on Nov. 3, 2016, while in the course and scope of his employment with Excel Modular, Belton sustained serious and permanent injuries when plywood fell on his head at a job site in Deer Park. The suit says Belton suffered physical and mental pain, lost wages and medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Excel Modular Scaffold failed to make the premises safe and failed to properly supervise its employees, invitees and subcontractors.
Belton seeks trial by jury, monetary relief up to $75,000, interest, costs of court and all such other further relief. He is represented by attorneys Jeff Limmer and John Arthur Daspit of Daspit Law Firm in Houston.
