HUNTINGTON – A Wayne County resident who allegedly suffered neck and shoulder injuries after she was rear-ended by the driver of a roofing and construction vehicle is suing the company over allegations of negligence.
Aimee Hale filed suit against Shield Roofing and Construction LLC in Cabell Circuit Court seeking compensatory damages.
The suit states Hale was injured after her vehicle was struck from behind in July 2017 when she was stopped for construction work on an access road to Interstate 64 in Huntington. Hale alleges she was struck by a pickup truck driven by Shield Roofing employee Chad Crabtree. Hale claims she was "violently struck from behind," which caused "severe" injuries to her neck and shoulders and caused her to require extensive medical care and expenses.
In her suit, Hale claims that Crabtree failed to control his vehicle and failed to exercise due care.
Hale seeks damages for her injuries and losses, including reasonable attorney's fees. She is represented by Paul A. Ryker of Barboursville.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Christopher Chiles.
