MORGANTOWN – A man is suing A&P Trucking and several others after he claims he was injured during their Independence Day celebration by a fireworks explosion.
Paul Travis Panson, George Anthony Panson, Eric Matthew Mogyoros and Heavy Hauling & Rigging, Inc. were also named as defendants in the suit.
On July 4, 2015, the defendants held an Independence Day celebration in Morgantown and Lucas C. Davis was in attendance to watch the fireworks display, according to a complaint filed June 28 in Monongalia Circuit Court.
Davis claims the defendants negligently, carelessly, willfully, wantonly and/or recklessly caused fireworks to explode in a homemade cylinder used in displaying the fireworks.
As a result of the explosion, Davis suffered severe injuries to his body, according to the suit.
Davis claims the defendants failed to give proper warning of the hazardous, dangerous and defective conditions to their invited guests.
The defendants’ actions caused Davis to incur medical expenses; pain and suffering; physical limitations; diminished capacity to enjoy life; lost wages; loss of earning capacity; annoyance and inconvenience; and other consequences, according to the suit.
Davis is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. He is being represented by Samuel Spencer Stone and by John E. Artimez Jr. and James G. Bordas III of Bordas & Bordas.
