Court: Stark County Common Pleas
Plaintiff's Counsel: David M. Paris
Corporation Pays $1 Million to Employee for Crush Injuries
The defendant manufacturing plant developed a written procedure that required its employees to walk into a pinch point when moving heavy manufactured parts from point A to point B. Most employees developed their own ad hoc procedure allowing them to stay out of the pinch point with the elicit approval of management. The Plaintiff, a relatively new employee, followed the written procedure and was crushed in the pinch point by moving pieces of equipment because his partner followed the ad hoc procedure. Plaintiff sustained a crushed pelvis and third-degree burns. He cannot perform any heavy work.
