Spring company blamed for workplace accident, leg amputation
A company in Spring is being sued after an employee’s right leg was amputated.
Kelvin Graves filed a lawsuit on Sept. 19 in Harris County District Court against Continental Alloy & Services Inc. and Terald’s Delivery Services, citing negligence and negligence per se.
Graves says that on Sept. 7, he sustained serious and disabling injuries when Terald's, his employer, sent him to pick up heavy pipes from Continental Alloy, located on Stuebner-Airline in Spring. According to the brief, the flatbed truck Terald’s provided Graves to pick up the pipes lacked adequate side rails, which caused the pipes to crush his legs and right foot.
As a result of the accident, a surgeon amputated Graves’ right leg beneath his knee, the suit alleges.
Graves is seeking damages and court costs. He is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Stephen Boutros.
