I am a former employee of Subway in Waxahachie that was owned by Bopb Suarez. In the time i was there I seen first hand many safety issues that needed to be addressed.
One of the main issues was with the drive thru ice machine. It leaked all over the main floor and was obviously a safety hazzard. The manager was aware of it and so was corporate Subway, as noted in their compliance report. long story short, I slipped and fell one day in the store and injured my shoulder.
My shoulder was so hurt I couldn't even lift my kids. I missed several weeks of work, was in constant pain, and had to be under doctors care for a while. When I contacted Bob Suarez about the injury he shrugged it off and told me to "take a few days off and a few Excederin". When I told him a doctor suggested I get an MRI, he replied that doctors were all quacks just trying to get money and that he'd had many falls and was okay himself, so there was no reason why I shouldn't be okay as well.
Well as a piano player and a father, not having use of my arm was a major concern for me. I had to seek out an attorney to be able to see the right doctors, and have filed suit against "Bob". Problem is he is hiding from this suit. He has been served , but no one seems to know where he is or how to get in touch with him. My attorney has sent me a letter stating she is ready to file Notice of Nonsuit because she cant get ahold of him.
I think this really is unfair. I still hurt to this day when I do anything for an extende amount of time( 15-20 minutes tops). Some nights I dont sleep well because of shoulder pain, and had difficulty working at other places because of the same pain. So since I am the "little guy" and not well off, I should just suck it up, deal with my pain and losses, and let Bob go on about his business? This guy dosen't care about anything but the almighty dollar, and it isn't right.
I don't know what I'm entitled to or what I deserve, but I want justice for this. Here it is almost 4 yrs later and there is still no resolution. If someone can help me please let me know. Any advice or support would be appreciated.
