WINFIELD - A man is suing his employer after he allegedly fell from a ladder while constructing a new roof.
Paul and Rose Feazell filed a lawsuit Oct. 17 in the Circuit Court of Putnam County against Tri-State Roofing & Sheet Metal Company of West Virginia Inc., citing negligence and loss of consortium.
According to the complaint, on Nov. 7, 2011, Paul Feazell was an employee of Tri-State Roofing and working to construct a new roof on Poca Middle School.
Feazell says that in order to complete the work, ladders were placed on the roof in order to gain access to a higher portion of the roof. He claims that a ladder was left on a portion of the roof overnight and accumulated frost.
Feazell alleges that when he attempted to use the ladder on Nov. 7, 2011, it slipped out from beneath him, causing him to fall and be injured.
The Feazells are seeking an undisclosed amount of damages. They are being represented in the case by attorney Larry O. Ford of Meyer, Ford, Glasser & Radman PLLC.
