A company with a La Porte facility is now being sued after an employee was injured in a workplace accident. The lawsuit states that the company failed to give the man a ladder which caused him to receive a back injury.
The lawsuit was filed Aug. 30 against Roadlink Transportation Solutions after they were negligent in not giving him the appropriate equipment to work with. The company did not provide the man with a ladder when he was working in a container that was five to six feet off of the ground.
When climbing out, he slipped and fell to the ground which caused him to hurt his back. The man is currently seeking damages and compensation for court costs.
