LAFAYETTE – A welder alleges he was injured by a Schlumberger employee while stationed on a drillship.

Craig Daniels filed a complaint on May 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, Lafayette Division against James M. Hash and Schlumberger Technology Corp. alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 28, 2016, he was working aboard the Ensco DS-6 drillship in the South China Sea when he was injured by defendant's employee, Hash. The plaintiff suffered injuries to his left eye.

The plaintiff holds Hash and Schlumberger Technology Corp. responsible because the defendant Schlumberger allegedly is vicariously liable for the actions of its employee.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, plus interest and costs of suit and all further relief as the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Craig A. Davis of Craig A. Davis APLC in Lafayette.
