Cashier makes injury claim after shooting

A cashier from an Illinois supermarket is making a personal injury compensation claim against his employer after he was attacked at work.

The man was shot in the leg and hit over the head with a beer bottle by an irate customer at the store in Granite City, Madison County, and has now decided to make a work accident claim for damages.

His personal injury suit claims his boss failed to protect him properly by not providing security personnel, failing to install a counter that kept a safe distance between customer and cashier, and also neglecting to post signs encouraging customers not to commit crimes in the shop.

The exact details of the violent attack are unknown but the cashier was rushed to hospital by paramedics. He was treated for serious personal injuries but was later released and it is thought there will be no long term physical effects of the assault.

He has recruited a personal injury solicitor to help him make the work accident claim and he is seeking damages of just over £25,000.
