FAYETTEVILLE - A Raleigh County resident is suing his former employer after a workplace accident resulted in serious injury.
John D. Pettry filed a lawsuit Sept. 13 in the Circuit Court of Fayette County against Swope Construction Co., citing deliberate intent.
Pettry says on July 16, 2012, he suffered serious injury when working for Swope Construction at the Boy Scout Camp in Glen Jean. The complaint states the plaintiff fell from a concrete form after warning his employer that he needed safety equipment, but none was provided.
Pettry contends that Swope Construction knew of the unsafe condition, failed to provide the necessary equipment in violation of state or federal law and intentionally exposed employees to the unsafe working environment.
Pettry is seeking an undisclosed amount in damages. He is being represented in the case by Fayetteville attorney Anthony M. Salvatore.
Circuit Court of Fayette County Civil Action No. 13-C-233.
