A man has filed a personal injury suit alleging that an incident while working in which he was struck in the face with construction materials has caused him to experience psychological, behavioral, and personality changes.

Andrew Buckley filed suit against Rehkemper & Sons and National Crane Company, doing business as Manitowoc Cranes, Inc., on June 5 in Illinois’, St. Clair County Circuit Court.

The suit claims that as Buckley was working at a construction suit for McFadden Construction Company, Rehkemper and Sons was moving heavy construction supplies at the same site with mobile cranes. The suit says that the accident occurred as employees of Rehkemper and Sons were trying to move bundled floor trusses.

According to the suit, as the crane operator lowered and extended the crane’s telescoping arm, it suddenly broke, dropping the bundled floor trusses. While falling, the trusses glanced off of other materials stacked on the ground and one end bounced upwards and struck Buckley in the head and chest, catapulting him several feet backwards onto a concrete surface.

Buckley claims the incident caused him to sustain facial fractures that required him to undergo reconstructive surgery of his facial bones and sinuses and a traumatic brain injury that caused his changes. He also claims to have experienced an impaired ability to enjoy the ordinary pursuits of life and lose wages and income due to being unable to work.

Buckley seeks damages in excess of $50,000.
