Employee sues employer for $10 million
A former construction worker is suing his employer for $10 million after he lost his leg in a car accident that occurred while on the job. The man says his boss was negligent as she was driving a pickup truck and ran over him.
While his boss has taken sole responsibility for the accident and agreed that he should be awarded workers’ compensation for the accident, she believes that his compensation should be capped at $50,000 by law. The man claims he was not covered by workers’ compensation insurance and so no limit should be imposed.
He is seeking the $10 million in lost income, the extent of his injuries, medical expenses, unpaid overtime, and his wife’s emotional distress.
