MARSHALL — An employee is suing Tyson Foods Inc. after she allegedly lost her balance and fell face first from an elevated platform in the de-boning area onto the floor. 

Brenda Stevenson filed a complaint on Aug. 21, in the Marshall Division of the Eastern District of Texas, against Tyson Foods alleging that the multinational corporation allegedly refused to let her see a medical professional at her workplace until 10 days after the accident.  

She claims that Tyson Foods failed to provide a safe working environment.

She alleges that on Jan. 27, she was injured after allegedly losing her balance and falling face first on the floor. She claims to have suffered physical pain and mental anguish, loss of earning capacity, and medical treatment expenses. 

The plaintiff holds Tyson Foods Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly required her to work in an unsafe condition, did not permit her to see any medical professional and failed to provide medical assistance.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs of suit and such other and further relief to which she may show herself to be justly entitled. She is represented by Daniel D. Horowitz, III of The Law Office of Daniel D. Horowitz, III, PC in Houston and Matthew J. Kita of Matthew J. Kita, Attorney at Law in Dallas.
