Workplace Accident Resulting in Paralysis

A young man that suffered paralysis to his lower body when a bucket of parts was negligently dropped on his head. The defendant argued that the client was a co-worker of the employee that dropped the bucket on him, thus limiting our client to worker’s compensation benefits. Mr. Crossen argued that they were not co-employees because even though they work at the same plant, they were employed and paid by two separate companies. The case settled out of court after the Judge agreed that our client was employed by a different employer.
