Arnold & Itkin filed a case against Valmont Industries, Inc., JB Justice & Co., and MAPP Construction whose negligence caused a tractor-trailer driver employee to be injured while unloading his trailer. Prior to the incident, the Defendants had improperly loaded the trailer so that a forklift could not be used to unload it.
When the plaintiff arrived at the unloading facility, the Defendants failed to provide the plaintiff with adequate manpower and assistance. As a result, the plaintiff was forced to attempt a manual unload of the trailer with insufficient help, which resulted in him suffering serious injuries to his ribs, lung, and shoulder.
The case has been filed in Harris County, Houston, Texas.
