NEW ORLEANS – A subsea engineer alleges he was injured on the job because his Texas employer didn't provide a safe working environment.
Dameian Beech filed a complaint on Nov. 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Noble Services International Limited citing the Jones Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 8, 2013, he was working as a subsea engineer aboard defendant's drilling rig, The Noble Dave Beard, when he sustained injuries resulting in physical and mental pain and anguish, loss of wage earning capacity, loss of enjoyment of life and medical expenses. The plaintiff holds Noble Services International Limited responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide competent crew aboard the drilling rig, failed to provide safety equipment, gear and other appurtenances and failed to properly supervise, manage and train the crew for the work activity.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for compensatory, consequential, punitive and all monetary damages and all costs and disbursements of this action. He is represented by Joseph A. LoCoco and Virginia L. LoCoco of LoCoco & LoCoco PLLC in D'Iberville, Mississippi.
