Employee blames Gaydos Construction for skid loader accident

By Jenie Mallari-Torres | Jun 19, 2018

PITTSBURGH — An employee is suing Gaydos Construction & Asphalt Paving Co. Inc. and George Gaydos for negligence connected to injuries allegedly sustained by the plaintiff at work.

John Brown filed a complaint May 31 in Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas, alleging that the defendants failed to exercise reasonable care for the safety of its workers.

According to the complaint, Brown was preparing to start work on Sept. 1, 2016 when a skid loader he was attempting to enter allegedly malfunctioned and pinned him to the ground, resulting to severe injuries, pain and discomfort, emotional distress, shock, permanent disability, loss of the enjoyment of life, loss of income and medical expenses. 

Brown said the defendants failed to properly inspect and maintain the equipment, failed to warn him of the defective skid loader and/or disabled safety mechanism and failed to train and supervise employees regarding the safe operation of the equipment.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment against defendants in an amount in excess of $35,000. He is represented by Gary Ogg, David Kennedy Houck and Eve Elsen of Ogg, Murphy & Perkosky PC in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
