Appalachian Tire employee sues company after accident

CHARLESTON -- A man is suing Appalachian Tire Products, Inc. after he was injured in a car accident.

Bryan Alan Cook, an employee of Appalachian Tire Products, was also named as a defendant in the suit.

On Sept. 1, 2010, Jeffrey Morgan was operating a 1996 Honda Civic at the intersection of Bowne Avenue and MacCorkle Avenue in Charleston, according to a complaint filed Aug. 15 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Morgan claims while he was at the intersection, Cook, who was operating an Appalachian truck in the course and scope of his employment, was driving in a careless and reckless manner and collided with his vehicle.

As a result of the defendants' negligence and carelessness, Morgan injured his neck, back and shoulder, according to the suit.

Morgan claims he also incurred medical expenses and will incur additional medical expenses in the future.

Due to the accident, Morgan endured pain and suffering; has sustained an impairment of the capacity to enjoy life; and suffered annoyance, aggravation and mental anguish, according to the suit.
