CHARLESTON -- A St. Albans man is suing NRMLSUB 1, Nova Records Management and Cornerstone Records Management after he was injured at work.

On Sept. 3, 2008, Craig D. Carter was performing his job duties when he was moving crates from the lift/elevator and fell approximately one story to the ground, according to a complaint filed May 12 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Carter claims the defendants failed to provide a reasonably safe condition to its employees; created and/or permitted unsafe and hazardous conditions to exit concerning the lift/elevator; knew or should have known about such unsafe conditions or hazards; failed to reasonably and properly inspect and/or correct the unsafe conditions; and failed to warn employees of the hazards.

As a result of the defendants' negligent, careless, wrongful and unlawful conduct, Carter sustained temporary and permanent injuries to his body; incurred medical bills to treat his injuries; lost income; physical pain and suffering; mental anguish and emotional distress; lost enjoyment of life; scarring; humiliation and embarrassment; and has been otherwise damaged, according to the suit.

Carter is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. He is being represented by Marvin W. Masters and Charles M. Love IV.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carrie Webster.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 10-C-863
