Everett Sakosko III is suing Muegele Construction Inc. and Anderson Construction Co. for injuries he sustained after falling off the roof of a home under construction in Mascoutah on Jan. 19.
Seeking in excess of $100,000 in damages, Sakosko claims the defendants were negligent for failing to place toe boards at the base of the roof and for failing to provide him with a harness.
According to the complaint, Muegele Construction was the project's general contractor.
Sasosko claims he suffered severe and permanent injuries to both legs.
He is represented by Bruce R. Cook of Cook, Ysursa, Bartholomew, Brauer & Shevlin of Belleville.
