Printer Gets Sued Over Accident

HUNTINGTON, WV—Chapman Printing has been taken to court by one of its employees who was injured when his hand became stuck in a press.

Michael Brown filed suit in Kanawha Circuit Court, claiming that while he was making repairs on a Heidelberg Speedmaster, his supervisor started the press, states The West Virginia Record. Brown’s hand was caught in the rollers and crushed, according to the suit.

Brown says he has suffered severe disfigurement and physical injuries from the March 2006 incident, which also caused serious emotional distress, the Record reported. The suit claims that Chapman Printing caused an unsafe working condition and Brown is seeking compensation for his injuries.
