Trial date set in sulphuric acid eye injury case
Posted on Sep 12, 2009
A district judge in Harris County, Texas, has set a preferential trial date for a case against Hoyer Global (USA), Inc. A company had sent one of its tanker-trailers to Hoyer Global to be cleaned. The tanker-trailer was used to transport sulphuric acid. Hoyer Global worked on the tanker-trailer and returned it to the company, with a "Certificate of Cleanliness" incidating it had properly cleaned the product. However, Hoyer Global failed to clean out a "scrubber" which is an integral part of the tanker-trailer. When a worker was working on the product, the scrubber released sulphuric acid into both of his eyes. The worker is permanently legally blind in both eyes as a result of this incident. Inexplicably, Hoyer Global continues to deny any responsibility. The judge scheduled the trial to begin on February 1, 2010. The worker is represented by Vujasinovic & Beckcom.
