Mechanic Sues Employer, Says Unsafe Conditions Caused Serious Injury

 | Jan 4, 2019 | Uncategorized

A mechanic is suing his employer, citing alleged failure to protect, deliberate intent and negligence.

The plaintiff filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against Andritz Separation, Inc. alleging that it exposed him to unsafe working conditions.

According to the complaint, on Nov. 22, 2016, the plaintiff was working as a mechanic for the defendant when he was allegedly directed by his employer to assemble a centrifuge gearbox weighing approximately 300 pounds by lifting the unit with a crane.

As he was working on the unit, it allegedly fell and crushed his right arm causing a traumatic partial amputation.

The plaintiff holds Andritz Separation, Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly presented plaintiff a high degree of risk and strong probability of serious injury or death arising from the elevated and unsecured equipment on which he was required to work.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for losses and damages, together with pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney fees, cost, and such relief deems just. He is represented by Robert B. Warner, Lynnette Simon Marshall and Andrew D. Byrd of Warner Law in Charleston.
