EDWARDSVILLE — An ironworker is suing a construction company, alleging unsafe conditions caused the plaintiff to suffer injuries.
Audrey Osborn filed a complaint April 22 in Madison County Circuit Court against Plocher Construction Company Inc., alleging construction negligence and liability.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 27, 2018, Osborn was employed by the defendant as an ironworker at a construction site located at 2222 Lincoln Trail in Taylorville.
