Jeffrey L. Wick Sr v URS Energy & Construction
PA-Patrick Cassidy; J-NA
* Wick, employed as a journeyman/boilermaker, for URS was injured while working. He claims URS discouraged him from going on compensation and also from getting x-rays or going to a doctor. The plant nurse advised his injury was a sprain. He continued to work for the next three weeks before being told his ankle was broken and there was ligament damage. Because he was advised against workers' compensation, he was assigned to light duty for 11 weeks. After his cast was removed and he returned to regular work duty, he was laid off. Wick contends his lay off was part of URS' practice to avoid workers' comp claims. He is seeking loss of job, income, benefits, front pay, pre and post judgment interest and attorney fees.
Case number: 10-C-864
