HUNTINGTON – A Kentucky man is suing two construction companies over injuries he allegedly incurred when he was pinned between a truck and a dumpster.
Todd Brown and Jessica Brown filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against B&B Contractors & Developers Inc., FDI of Cleveland LLC and John Doe alleging negligence.
The suit states that Todd Brown was at the Huntington Mall in Barboursville on May 8, 2017, to retrieve a roll-off dumpster in use by the defendants during the course of their construction work. The suit states the defendants moved it to an inaccessible area and Doe, in the scope of his employment for FDI or B&B, used machinery to push the dumpster to the truck the plaintiff was using.
The suit states the plaintiff was injured when Doe resumed pushing the dumpster while the plaintiff was attempting to connect it with the truck, causing him to be pinned between the truck and the dumpster.
The plaintiffs are seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. They are represented by Thomas P. Boggs of Duffield, Lovejoy, Stemple & Boggs PLLC in Huntington.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Paul T. Farrell.
