Truck driver blames well service operator, employee for causing crash

By Philip Gonzales | Jan 11, 2017

WEST UNION — A Pennsylvania truck operator is suing a Texas oil well service business and its employee, alleging their negligence caused a crash that injured the plaintiff. 

Michael Perhach of Monogahela, Pennsylvania, filed a complaint Dec. 19 in Doddridge Circuit Court against Big Tex Well Services LLC of Weatherford, Texas, and Ben Ingrin, alleging Ingrin failed to operate his truck under proper control.

According to the complaint, on Jan 6, 2015, Perhach was operating a truck in a careful manner on Jockey Camp Road in Doddridge County and was stopped due to weather conditions. The suit says Ingrin, operating a truck owned by Big Tex, negligently struck the rear of plaintiff's vehicle.

The lawsuit states the crash caused Perhach to suffer serious and severe injuries to his body and nervous system and lose enjoyment of life. The plaintiff alleges Ingrin carelessly drove his vehicle into the plaintiff's lane of travel, failed to observe the condition of the roadway and failed to keep proper lookout.

Perhach seeks trial by jury, judgment against the defendants, jointly and severally, for all damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney fees and costs and all other proper relief. He is represented by attorney James A. Villanova and Michael E. Metro of Villanova Law Offices PC in Pittsburgh.
