Lawsuit Filed After Worker Injured at Power Plant

by | Nov 27, 2019 | Civil litigation, Firm News, Personal Injury

Spagnoletti Law Firm recently filed suit on behalf of a worker who sustained severe injuries at Entergy’s Waterford Nuclear plant located in Killona, Louisiana.  Our client was fueling a generator located at the plant. This required him to stand on a raised platform, five feet off the ground. The platform equipment was owned and assembled by Defendant Aggreko. Without warning, the platform collapsed beneath the worker. He was violently thrown to the ground, sustaining severe physical injuries.  The lawsuit alleges the two companies were negligent in:

(a) failing to properly select, hire, train and manage Defendants’ employees;
(b) failing to properly select, hire, train and manage independent contractors working at the plant;
(c) failing to implement proper and adequate safety methods and/or procedures;
(d) failing to take reasonable precautions for Plaintiff’s safety;
(e) failing to provide Plaintiff with a reasonably safe place to work;
(f) providing defective equipment;
(g) failing to inspect the platform prior to use by Plaintiff

The Plaintiff is represented by Marcus R. Spagnoletti and Eric J. Rhine.
