Heavens Law Files Federal Suit On Behalf of Construction Worker

Chris Heavens of Heavens Law Firm has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of a victim who claims that a contractor's lack of proper warning signs were responsible for a car accident that caused severe injuries.

Chris Heavens of Heavens Law Firm, a practice that spans both West Virginia and Pennsylvania, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Charles Mathues of Brookhaven, Pennsylvania, who was injured in a car accident when a car ran into him at a construction site on Kerlin Street in Chester.

Mathues claims in his suit that the contractor’s lack of warning signs around the work area was a clear violation of local and state ordinances and was the promixate cause of his injuries. He is requesting compensatory damages as the result of two counts of negligence against his employer, Metra Industries, Inc.

The accident occurred at a site where the Chester Water Authority in Delaware County had hired Metra to perform work on a section of the water distribution system. Mathues had allegedly parked a work truck out of the way of traffic when another car rammed the back of the vehicle, causing it to hit him and throw him into the air. He suffered several injuries including an ACL tear and emotional distress, according to the complaint.

Metra Industries was cited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for failing to place warning signs around the work area.
