PERRYSBURG - A Toledo man is suing a city firm where he worked for $25,000 for injuries on the job.
Brendon Ingram, Toledo, filed the suit Monday in Wood County Court of Common Pleas against Cool Seal USA, as well as 10 unnamed "John Does" listed as defendants in the matter.
According to the complaint document, "intentional acts" on the part of the defendants resulted in Ingram "suffering serious and permanent personal injuries incurred on or about April 28, 2013, which resulted in, among other injuries, crushed and broken bones in his right arm, skin grafts, significant bodily injuries requiring hospitalization and surgical repair, emotional distress and mental anguish."
The complaint alleges that Ingram's injuries resulted when he was told by management to clean a lamination machine that applied backings to sheets of corrugated plastic.
It argues that the defendants did not have appropriate lockout devices and safety guards on the machine, and that another employee had been similarly injured by the machine six months earlier. Action, the complaint states, was not taken by the company "which it knew would prevent serious bodily injury, and took actions which it knew would cause serious bodily injury."
The suit seeks $25,000 in compensatory damages, as well as unspecified punitive damages.
The company is located in Perrysburg.
