CHARLESTON -- A man is suing Bun Bakers after he claims he was injured on the job by another employee.

William Romeo, an employee at Bun Bakers, was also named as a defendant in the suit.

On May 1, 2009, Jeremi Turley was working at Bun Bakers, which was doing business as Schlotzsky's, and was working side-by-side with Romeo, according to a complaint filed April 5 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Turley claims Romeo became frustrated with him at one point, grabbed hot foil and slammed it down on his hand.

Romeo's actions were intentional and reckless and caused Turley to suffer significant burns, according to the suit.

Turley claims Romeo committed a civil battery against him.

Bun Bakers had a duty of reasonable care and breached the duty by failing to provide a safe place to work, according to the suit.

Turley is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. He is being represented by Christopher T. Pritt.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Tod J. Kaufman.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 11-C-555
