Kraft Foods, Capri Sun named in loading dock injury suit
Dale K. Tompkin is suing Kraft Foods Global, Inc. and Capri Sun, Inc. for neck and head injuries he suffered at a Granite City loading dock June 15, 2006.
According to a suit filed June 12 in Madison County Circuit Court, Tompkin alleges the defendants were negligent for failing to organize loaded cargo within a sufficient space so as to prevent the tilting and falling of cargo.
Represented by Kevin T. Dawson of Brown & Associates of Belleville, Tompkin is seeking in excess of $50,000 in damages, plus costs of the suit.
He claims Capri Sun failed to warn him of the unusually heavy and dangerous weight of the loaded cargo in a trailer.
His suit claims he has incurred medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and the loss of enjoyment of life.
