When it comes to lawsuits where someone is alleging that they have “fallen” and gotten “hurt”, I am quite suspicious. But if the basic facts of this story are true, Suddenlink should be ashamed.
To quickly summarize, the WVRecord writes about a former Suddenlink employee suing the company after she was denied disability benefits after she was hurt on the job when climbing a ladder. The woman alleges that after she fell from the ladder during a cable installation, Suddenlink denied her disabilities benefits, workers compensation and other benefits.
Now, there are a number of factors that tend to make me lean towards the employee. As the lawsuits alleges:
- The employee worked at Suddenlink for 10 years
- Before the employee went on the ladder for the cable installation, she reported to Suddenlink on the radio that the job looked dangerous.
- Suddenlink had had two male employees refuse to work at this installation site in the past due to its dangerous conditions.
- The woman claims to have asked to go BACK to work after several surgeries.
Again, assuming these are true….which I imagine are all easy verifiable….that is amazing.
