SETTLEMENT FOR PAIN AND SUFFERING: AN EXPOSED WIRE INJURED A WORKER

A truck driver moving a pallet on a lift was injured on the job when he was shocked by electric wire like these exposed wires.

Our Attorney Mike Stephenson was hired by an attorney in Indianapolis to assist in pursuing a claim on behalf of “R.K.” against Aldi Foods. R.K. was a delivery truck driver who had made a delivery to an Aldi store during the middle of the night. While making the delivery, he was pushing a pallet jack through a freezer door when he received an electrical shock from an exposed wire and a threshold that had been missing for some period of time.

The defendant denied liability and initially claimed that our client was malingering or grossly exaggerating any injuries he may have received while on the job. Before Attorney Stephenson’s involvement in the case, the defendants had offered a nuisance value settlement. After a thorough investigation and hiring the proper expert, Stephenson was able to establish that R.K. would never return to his job as a truck driver. Further, Mike Stephenson was able to establish through expert testimony that the injuries and complaints of pain and suffering were very real and legitimate. After a second round of mediation, our client received a confidential settlement for is injury at work.

Indiana Construction Accident Injury

Over 100 workers are killed in Indiana each year due to workplace accidents. In addition to these preventable worker deaths, Indiana also reported an illness and injury rate of 3.9 per 100 workers. We understand that construction workers aren’t guaranteed a risk-free workplace. But the laws and regulations in place to protect their safety and the safety of others must be enforced.

The defendants in construction accident cases are often big businesses with large amounts of money set aside to fight worker claims. These companies have resources, and they are willing to use them to protect their bottom lines. We have resources, too.

About Construction Accidents Example Cases

Indiana Equipment Injuries

Employers are required by state and federal laws to maintain safe workplaces. That includes providing safety equipment designed to eliminate or mitigate injury and ensuring that machinery is working correctly by properly servicing it and monitoring its operation. Some accidents with equipment happen because the employer fails to properly maintain and service the equipment used in the production process. Our firm handled one such claim involving a pipe fitter in a factory who was crushed because some screws were missing from a lift’s control panel. Sometimes workers are harmed by machinery or a piece of equipment that was defective in design or manufacture, and in these situations the company which produced the faulty apparatus can be held responsible.

If you or a family member has been injured by a piece of equipment while on the job, contact McNeely Stephenson. Our Indiana lawyers are dedicated to thoroughly investigating accidental injuries so that every responsible party is held to account.

About Equipment Injuries

Workplace Burn Injuries

Nine percent of burns are occupational injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) imposes strict safety standards on employers; nevertheless, workplace fires and explosions kill 200 and injure more than 5,000 workers annually. Electrical burns are most common, caused by arcing or explosion. Some employees work near boilers or hot machinery that can cause thermal burns. Restaurant workers are especially prone to thermal burns, from deep fryers and grills. Chemical burns are also a hazard in some industrial settings where caustic chemicals and acids are used.

Do I Have a Legal Case if My Child Develops CTE from Sports?

Thanks largely to the research of neuropathologist Dr. Ann McKee and her team at Boston University’s CTE Center, more and more is becoming known about the connection between sports and CTE, or Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. This degenerative disease — caused by repeated concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) — is definitively diagnosable only after death, but it has been linked to myriad problems in life, including anxiety...
