MEDIA – A man believes a pair of defendants are responsible for premises liability issues which caused him to suffer serious arm and shoulder injuries, sustained in the course of his employment with a major trucking and transportation company.
Hector Cartagena of Kennett Square filed suit on Feb. 21 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas, versus Concord Beverage L.P. of Tampa, Fla. and Cott Corporation of Glen Mills.
“On or about March 1, 2015, plaintiff [Hector] Cartagena was picking up a loaded trailer from defendant Cott at 20 Aldan Avenue, Glen Mills, PA, 19342, while in the course of his employment with J.B. Hunt.” the litigation says.
“Cartagena backed his truck up to the trailer that he was assigned to pick up; however, due to a defect in the cement under the trailer, he was unable to level the trailer with the hitch on his truck. Cartagena attempted to contact defendant Cott’s on-site representatives (a “yard jockey”) for assistance, but did not get a response. As a result, Cartagena suffered severe and permanent injuries,” the litigation continues.
The plaintiff says the defendants’ negligence caused him to suffer a torn left rotator cuff, arthritis as a direct result of injury and recommended elbow replacement.
For a lone count of negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $50,000, plus costs, interests and delay damages.
The plaintiff is represented by Emanuel Kosacci of Kosacci Law Firm, in Feasterville.
