A Staunton man is suing his former employer for a work related injury he claims was exacerbated by their negligence.

William A. Billings filed suit on Sept. 25 in Madison County Circuit Court claiming Triton Risk Management and Barbara Hill displayed a willful disregard for injuries incurred at his place of work and deprived him of proper medical care.

According to the complaint, Billings claims he was injured while on the job and was poorly treated by medical professionals assigned to him by his place of work. Billings alleges this negligence aggrieved his injuries, further forcing him to incur more physical damage, which he claims negatively affected business and personal life.

Billings is seeking economic damages in the total of $611,440 for lost wages, lost business opportunities, sale of business equipment and personal property and debt incurred. Billings also seeks $550,000 in non-economic damages for pain and suffering including but not limited to mental and physical anguish, depression, and mental and physical pain.

Billings is representing himself in this case.
