Lawsuit Filed Against Drilling Company after Commercial Crane Slams into SUV

Rob Ammons has filed a lawsuit on behalf of two Texas residents, both age 21, who were seriously injured when their Ford Edge was rear-ended by a commercial crane in Galveston County, Texas. Damage to the Ford Edge was severe.

Defendants in the lawsuit are a Louisiana-based company that operates oil and gas field properties and that company’s employee who was operating the crane at the time of the collision. According to the lawsuit filed by The Ammons Law Firm, the driver of the crane was negligent in failing to control his speed, failing to keep a proper lookout, failing to timely apply his brakes and failing to take evasive action to avoid colliding with the Edge. That driver’s employer is responsible for such negligence in operating its vehicle since the crane was being driven in the course and scope of the employee’s job duties. Ammons’ lawsuit also includes allegations that the drilling company was negligent in not adequately training the operators of its commercial vehicles and in failing to monitor and supervise their performance on the roads.
