Former fireman sues DFW city for injuries
A former fireman is suing the city he worked for when he was injured on the job claiming the city is refusing to pay for his recovery. Reports say the 31-year-old man filed a lawsuit against University Park seeking up to $1 million in damages to help recover costs he sustained because of a back injury in 2011.
According to reports, he injured his back while trying to lift a patient onto a stretcher in 2011. Because of the injury, he has received extensive and costly medical treatment for his back and has suffered a lot of pain. The former firefighter said University Park has refused to pay his medical bills. He no longer works for the city.
According to reports, University Park is denying the allegations. Officials say the city is committed to the health and well-being of all its employees.
