A Madison County delivery man is suing one of his clients, claiming an oxygen tank fell on him.

Tiller Witt filed a lawsuit against U.S. Steel Jan. 26 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Witt says he was working for Airgas Mid-America in February 2009. While making a delivery to U.S. Steel in Granite City, Will claims a liquid oxygen can and cart fell on his leg.

Witt accuses U.S. Steel of negligence for not keeping its property safe. He is asking the company to pay him more than $50,000 for medical expenses, loss of income and court costs.

Attorney Daniel K. Juncker, of Belleville, is representing Witt.
