Construction worker sues for $10 million
A construction worker has filed a lawsuit against his former employers after he suffered a severe injury while on the job. The man says his boss was negligent and inattentive as she was backing up a truck and ran him over. As a result of the accident, the man’s leg had to be amputated.
He is seeking $10 million in damages for the severity of his injuries as well as medical expenses, lost income, unpaid overtime, and his wife’s emotional distress.
The man’s boss claims she is eager to help and apologetic over the incident, but believes his compensation should be capped by workers’ compensation laws to around $50,000. However, he argues he was not covered by workers’ compensation insurance at the time of the accident so the cap should not apply to his case.
