On May 21, a man from Granite City, Illinois filed a personal injury suit in the Circuit Court of Madison County, Illinois claiming that he was injured by a loading dock door falling on his foot while working.

According to Leonard Crone, an employee of PFD Supply in Granite City, Massey Equipment allegedly failed to properly repair a door. The complaint says that Crone was injured on May 24, 2006 because of a malfunction in dock door number 10 that caused it to suddenly and without warning fall on his foot.

According to Crone, Massey spent four hours repairing the door the day before the incident before putting it back into service.

Crone alleges negligence on the part of Massey for its failure to repair the door, failure to properly inspect the work performed, placing the door back into service, and failure to warn uses of the defective condition of the door.

Crone alleges that because of the incident, he sustained permanent injuries to the nerves, tissues, and tendons in his left foot, resulting in past, present, and future pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages. He seeks damages in excess of $50,000.
