Drywall Installer FIles Personal Injury Case

Joseph Brown Jr., a drywall installer, has filed a personal injury lawsuit against McDermott Inc, his employer, after he injured his back while carrying a wooden pallet with sheets of drywall. Brown was assigned to carry pallets along the entryway of a large marine structure being erected at the McDermott fabrication yard. “Brown states the pallets were approximately 200 pounds and he was injured when a co-worker stumbled, forcing Brown to carry the entire weight of the pallet. Brown injured his lower back, he claims.” The defendant is accused of negligence for failing to provide workers with a safe workplace, failing to properly supervise the activities, failing to properly train workers, for requiring workers to carry heavy loads with insufficient assistance and requiring workmen to carry heavy loads along an unsafe egress to the installation site. The plaintiff is seeking damages for physical pain and suffering, mental pain, suffering and anguish, medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, disfigurement and disability, loss of enjoyment of life, interest and court costs.
