MARLINTON — A Randolph County truck driver suing a freight company, alleging deliberate intent and negligence led to injuries to the plaintiff.
Stephen Bosher filed a complaint in Pocahontas Circuit Court against Burns Motor Freight Inc., alleging failure to ensure its employees were provided proper safety equipment and training.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 19, 2016, while in the course of his employment with Burns Motor as a truck driver, Bosher was thrown from the top of a truck's flatbed to the ground as he was attempting to cover a load of lumber at a saw mill in London, Kentucky.
As a result, Bosher says, he sustained severe bodily injuries and has endured medical procedures, medications and medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Burns Motor Freight failed to provide its truck drivers with fall protection equipment and training regarding fall protection. The suit says this created specific unsafe working condition that presented a high degree of risk and a strong probability of serious injury.
Bosher seeks trial by jury, damages, attorney fees, court costs, expenses, pre- and post-judgment interest, and all other just relief. He is represented by attorney Brian L. Ooten of Shaffer & Shaffer, PLLC in Madison.
