CHICAGO – A truck driver
alleges that he was injured in a warehouse of a metal wire company.
Igor Tsybulskiy filed a complaint on May 2 in Cook County Circuit Court against Johnstown Wire Technologies Inc. citing negligence and premises liability.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 4, 2010, he was lawfully walking in defendant's premises when he was struck by a forklift truck being operated by the defendant's employee. As a direct result, he alleges he sustained injuries to his left leg and knee and continued to suffer pain, was disabled for a certain period of time, lost wages and income and incurred medical expenses necessary for surgery and medical care.
The plaintiffs hold Johnstown Wire Technologies Inc. responsible because defendant's employee allegedly negligently operated a forklift without keeping a lookout, failed to sound the horn to warn the plaintiff of its approach and failed to restrict the movement of the forklift to areas where there are no pedestrians.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in a jurisdictional amount and costs for this action. He is represented by Warren E. Abramson of Sandman, Levy and Petrich LLC in Chicago.
