HUNTINGTON -- An Ironton, Ohio man is suing his former employer and two other companies for work related injuries he sustained on a job site.

Kenneth Bond was employed by Forth's Foods as a general laborer, according to a complaint filed June 4 in Cabell Circuit Court.

On June 5, 2008, Bond was moving unloaded roofing materials in preparation for roofing construction at a job site that also included employees from TST Logistics and Carpenter Co., according to the suit.

Bond claims while moving the unloaded roofing materials, employees from TST and Carpenter negligently pushed a bundle of roofing materials off the back of the semi-trailer, striking him in the head, neck, back and shoulder area.

The defendants were negligent in failing to provide a reasonably safe workplace, failing to properly supervise the work performed and ensure that proper safety equipment and loading/unloading equipment was used, according to the suit.

Bond is seeking compensatory damages. He is being represented by Robert B. Warner and William B. Hicks.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
