MOUNDSVILLE – A construction worker is suing his boss after he allegedly fell off a roof during a job, resulting in traumatic brain injury.

Christopher Ross, a minor, through his guardian and parent Anita Rush, filed a lawsuit Jan. 26 against C.S. Loy Construction in Marshall Circuit Court.

According to the complaint, in July 2013 the company allowed Ross to work on a roof without training and without protective sides. Ross fell 18 feet off the roof and hit his head on the concrete sidewalk below, the suit states, and he suffered skull and facial fractures and brain injury.

Ross and Rush seek damages for a permanently disabling injury as well as compensation for Ross' medical bills and lost income. The plaintiffs are represented by attorney Brent E. Wear of the Fitzsimmons Law Firm in Wheeling.

Marshall Circuit Court case number: 15-C-17H.
