Our client, a 50-year-old male dock worker was receiving a shipment from a truck. The dock worker informed the truck driver that the dock plate was not working and that he needed to get down on the floor of the loading dock to fix it. While he was fixing the dock plate, the truck driver, who was on the phone, backed up his truck and struck our client. Our client suffered a loss of consciousness, several broken ribs, and a punctured lung. Our client made a good recovery and had some soft tissue injuries which persisted.
