Suarez v. Dickmont Plastics Corp

In Suarez v. Dickmont Plastics Corp., 229 Conn. 99, 105, 639 A.2d 507 (1994) the Court reversed our decision upholding the trial court's granting of summary judgment in favor of the defendant where the plaintiff offered evidence showing that the employer required him to use his hands to clean machinery in operation rather than by using a vacuum after the machinery was shut off. The court concluded that "a jury could reasonably infer . . . that the defendant's conduct constituted more than a mere failure to provide appropriate safety or protective measures, and that the plaintiff's injury was the inevitable and known result of the actions required of him by the defendant." Id., 111.
