Lawsuit Against Mar-Jac Plant Seeks Justice and Reform, Says Pérez Family Attorney

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky – The Pérez family has filed a lawsuit against Mar-Jac Poultry Inc., alleging dangerous working conditions at the poultry processing plant. The family’s attorney, Ashley Edwards, hopes that the lawsuit will bring about significant changes in the plant’s operations and prioritize the safety of its employees.

The lawsuit claims that the Pérez family’s loved one, José Pérez, suffered a traumatic brain injury while working at the Mar-Jac plant. It alleges that the company failed to provide a safe work environment and neglected to implement proper safety protocols. The family believes that the incident could have been prevented if the necessary measures were in place.

According to Edwards, the lawsuit aims to shed light on the appalling conditions faced by workers at the Mar-Jac plant. She argues that negligent employers should be held accountable for endangering the lives of their employees. By seeking compensation for the Pérez family, Edwards hopes to send a message that such practices will not be tolerated.

Mar-Jac Poultry Inc. is no stranger to controversy, as it has faced previous allegations of workplace hazards. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited the plant multiple times for safety violations, including a lack of proper protection for employees. These citations raise concerns about the overall safety culture within the company.

The Pérez family lawsuit is part of a larger trend of workers asserting their rights and seeking recourse for workplace injuries. As awareness grows regarding the importance of worker safety, employees are increasingly challenging corporations that prioritize profit over the well-being of their workforce. This legal action is seen as a crucial step toward holding companies accountable for their actions.

It remains to be seen how Mar-Jac Poultry Inc. will respond to the lawsuit and whether this legal action will result in tangible changes. However, the Pérez family and their attorney are optimistic that this lawsuit will force the company to reassess its practices and make the necessary improvements to protect its workers. Only time will tell if this legal battle will lead to the desired outcome for the Pérez family and serve as a catalyst for change within the poultry processing industry.
