BELLEVILLE — A man is suing Buckhorn Inc., a plastic container manufacturer, after he allegedly suffered injuries when a plastic container collapsed while he was leaning on it.
James Spagne filed a complaint on Sept. 7 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Buckhorn Inc.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 22, he was at work and leaned against a plastic container made by the defendant. He claims the container failed to hold him and resulted in injuries.
The plaintiff alleges Buckhorn Inc. failed to manufacture a plastic container that was strong enough to support the weight of a normal person and failed to warn patrons not to lean on the containers.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus costs of this suit. He is represented by Thomas G. Maag of Maag Law Firm LLC in Wood River.
