Arnold & Itkin's work injury attorneys are representing an employee who was severely injured when told to perform a task that they were not trained or equipped to perform. Our client is a laborer in the leasing industry who was forced to lift heavy machinery without being given the proper training, personnel, or tools to safely perform the job. This husband and father now suffers from shoulder and back injuries.
Companies have the responsibility to ensure that their employees are equipped with the proper equipment and training to perform tasks in the safest way possible. When a company fails to hold safety as the highest priority, people like our client get hurt.
In a statement, one of our attorneys said, "I am proud to represent our client in his case. His employer placed him in harm's way without giving him the tools to do his job safely and successfully. I look forward to helping our client in his search to hold those responsible for his injuries fully accountable."
