Lawyers at Ammons Law Have Filed a Lawsuit Against Sam’s Club After Workplace Incident

The incident occurred while the plaintiff was working as a representative for another company. She was placed near the loading docks, where wooden pallets are unloaded. There, an employee for the defendant was operating a forklift and violently collided with the plaintiff. The plaintiff alleges the forklift operator’s view was obstructed due to the wooden pallets he was carrying. The complaint further alleges Sam’s failed to provide spotters nearby to prevent such an incident.

The causes of action the plaintiff is claiming are negligence and gross negligence towards Sam’s East. The alleged negligent and gross negligent acts committed by Sam’s employee are ascribed to Sam’s, as he was acting under the scope of his employers. The alleged negligent and gross negligent acts include failing to operate and load the forklift in a safe manner, failing to provide a spotter, safe workplace and adequate training.

Along with the physical and mental pain the plaintiff has endured, she has also been afflicted by a loss of earnings, as well as a loss of future earnings. The plaintiff alleges she is entitled to exemplary damages due to the actions amounting to gross negligence.
