GRAFTON — A Pennsylvania contractor is suing roofing and gutter services, alleging negligence led to injuries for the plaintiff.
Ronald D. Adams of Lake Lynn,, Pennsylvania, filed a complaint May 4 in Taylor Circuit Court against the Joshua Wolfe, doing business as WC Construction Company, doing business as Gutters Plus, and John Does 1-10, alleging they failed to provide a reasonably safe place to work.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 21, 2016, Adams was doing repair work on the roof of the Taylor County Courthouse. The suit says he was injured when he fell 20 feet to the ground while attempting to lift a box of shingles on the roof of the courthouse.
