An Illinois carpenter is suing his employers, alleging negligence following a job site accident.

Attilio Angellotti filed a lawsuit Aug. 25 in Cook County Circuit Court against the Dubs Company and Markham Division 9, alleging negligence.

On Sept. 4, 2013, the complaint states, while Angellotti was employed by Markham as a union carpenter working on DaVita Dialysis Center in Flossmoor., he fell through wooden boards from scaffolding to the floor.

The suit says the defendants were negligent in failing to inspect the scaffolding and failing to provide a safe place to work, among other negligent acts or omissions.

As a result of the fall, the lawsuit states, Angellotti suffered injuries including contracture of the long and middle fingers of his dominant hand, palm lacerations, elbow injuries and foot fractures. The plaintiff says he also sustained lost wages, pain and anguish and has incurred medical expenses.

Angellotti seeks more than $50,000, plus costs of the suit. He is represented by attorney Brandon C. Hall of Hart and David in Elmhurst.

Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015L008652.
