WILKES-BARRE – A Pittston man has filed a lawsuit against an Archbald paving company after he was reportedly struck by a dump truck in 2011.

Albert Grabosky, of Meade Street, filed the suit in Luzerne County Court through his attorney, Michael Pisanchyn, of Scranton, requesting more than $150,000 in damages.

According to the suit, on Aug. 30, 2011, Grabosky was walking when he was struck by a dump truck driven by Gerald Barna, an employee of the Stafursky Paving Co. The suit does not list the street or municipality where the accident occurred.

Pisanchyn did not return a phone call seeking clarification.

The suit also names Stafursky owner, David Stafursky, as a defendant, as well as Nationwide Affinity Insurance Co.

The suit says Barna was driving at a high rate of speed and failed to notice Grabosky was in the lane of travel, causing injuries to Grabosky’s leg, foot and heel.

The suit alleges Barna acted recklessly, carelessly, negligently and in an “outrageous” and “wanton” manner. Barna, the suit says, violated several aspects of the motor vehicle code.

Grabosky alleges he has suffered anguish, extensive current and future medical treatment, loss of wages, loss of enjoyment of life and humiliation.

The suit alleges three counts against Barna, the paving company and the insurance company, including negligence.
