Mr. Carl Woodbridge is suing his employer, Rentokil Initial, for an injury he suffered while working at a shopping center in England.

Mr.Woodbridge had been pruning some cacti plants when one of them shot toxic sap into his eye.

The sap burned his cornea and left him blinded for one week, and making him miss 6 weeks of work.

Mr. Woodbridge claims that his employer had not trained him properly for the work, had not been informed about the toxins in the plant and that they had not provided him with the safety equipment needed for the job

Mr.Woodbridge has left his position with the company and is now looking for compensation for this personal injury he suffered.
