CHICAGO — An employee is suing a group of companies, alleging negligence led to him being injured.

Ryan R. Burke filed a lawsuit March 24 in Cook County Circuit Court against BP Products North America Inc., Novaspect Mechanical Services LLC, Jacobs Engineering Group Inc., Imperial Crane Services Inc., ACMS Group Inc. and Solid Platforms Inc., alleging negligence and failing to provide a reasonable safe place to work for workers to prevent injuries at the Whiting facility.

According to the complaint, on Dec. 7, 2015, Burke suffered severe pain when an actuator crushed his foot at the water filtration plaint in Whiting, leading to permanent injuries. The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to reasonably inspect its premises and supervise work being done to prevent injuries to any individual.

Burke requests a trial by jury and damages in excess of the court's jurisdictional limits, plus costs of suit. He is represented by attorney Sean P. Murray of Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen LTD in Chicago.
