Dallas County man sues aviation school over back injury

HOUSTON – A Dallas County man studying to become an aviation mechanic claims that he suffered a back injury after a class last year.

Steven Rittman’s lawsuit against Training Services, Inc., doing business as Aviation Institute of Maintenance, states that Rittman sustained the injury as he and another student were stacking tables in a classroom on March 30, 2017.

A professor employed by the defendant reportedly instructed the plaintiff and his classmate to perform the task at the conclusion of the class.

“While Steven began lifting the tables, something suddenly snapped in Rittman’s back,” court papers say. “Rittman instantly felt sharp pains shooting up his spine. No longer able to support his own weight, much less the weight of the table, Rittman fell to the ground in agony.”

The suit faults the respondent for failing to provide proper supervision and supply safety equipment.

Consequently, Rittman seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

He is represented by attorney Tej R. Paranjpe of the law firm Paranjpe & Mahadass LLP in Houston.
