Stinnett v. Buchele

Kentucky Court of Appeals
598 S.W.2d 469 (1980)


Facts

Buchele (defendant) hired Stinnett (plaintiff) to paint the roof of Buchele’s barn. Stinnett had two years of painting experience and had painted many barn roofs. When painting these roofs, he occasionally used safety equipment, such as safety nets and belts. Stinnett did not ask Buchele to provide safety equipment, nor did he attempt to procure any. On a day when Buchele was not present, Stinnett attempted to paint the barn roof and fell from the roof, sustaining serious injuries. Stinnett brought a negligence claim against Buchele and the trial court granted summary judgment in favor of Buchele, ruling that there was no evidence of negligence.
