HUNTINGTON -- A Hurricane couple is suing Huntington Alloys Corporation after the husband was injured while employed by the company.

Taylor-Dunn Corporation; Taylor-Dunn Manufacturing Company; and Three Rivers Fluid Power, Inc., were also named as defendants in the suit.

On Nov. 11, 2008, Mark M. Holley was severely injured when an electric buggy spontaneously became energized and traveled off of the hydraulic life on which it had been raised, according to a complaint filed Oct. 15 in Cabell Circuit Court.

Holley claims he suffered fractured ribs, a fractured collar bone, a rotator cuff injury, a lacerated ear, pneumothorax and other contusions and abrasions to his body.

The defendants intentionally exposed Holley to unsafe working conditions and caused the severe and permanent injuries he sustained, according to the suit.

Holley's wife, Kathy Holley, claims she sustained great and irreparable loss in that she has been deprived of the society, companionship, consortium and services of her husband.

The Holleys are seeking compensatory damages. They are being represented by Edwin H. Pancake.

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

Cabell Circuit Court case number: 10-C-750
