A construction worker has filed a personal injury suit, alleging that he lost an eye because of another man attacking him at a job site.
According to the suit Stephen Cashion filed on February 25 in West Virginia’s Cabell Circuit Court, Matt Wooten’s attack upon him was unprovoked.
According to Cashion, as he was working on a construction project, he was suddenly assaulted by Wooten. He claims Wooten used a concrete pin to strike him on the head and face.
Cashion alleges that the injuries he suffered as a result of the attack were so severe, that he was required to have his left eye removed. He claims to have experienced severe emotional, physical, and mental distress and great ridicule, annoyance, and inconvenience.
Cashion claims that he has been unable to conduct business and earn wages. He claims an estimated loss of $30,000 and adds that he has accumulated $50,000 in medical costs and will incur future medical costs.
Cashion seeks compensatory and punitive damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, and court costs.
