Worker blames injuries on negligence at workplace

By Robert Hadley | May 3, 2016

HUNTINGTON – A Cabell County woman says her employer knowingly allowed a machine to malfunction, leading to her debilitating workplace injuries.

Rebecca Robinson filed a lawsuit April 1 in Cabell Circuit Court against Cabell Huntington Hospital Inc. and Diversified Maintenance, alleging negligence and deliberate intent.

According to the complaint, Robinson had worked for the defendant as a surgical technician since 2009. On April 3, 2014, the suit says she fell and was injured by a puddle of water that had leaked from a machine used to sterilize surgical instruments, suffering back, wrist and knee injuries. Robinson claims the machine had a known history of leaking and creating a workplace hazard, yet the hospital did nothing about this situation.

Robinson seeks a jury trial and compensatory damages, including lost wages, pain and suffering and medical expenses, plus litigation costs. She is represented by attorney Chelsea Walker-Gaskins of Gaskins Law Group PLLC in Charleston.

Judge F. Jane Hustead is assigned to the case.
