Arnold & Itkin has filed suit on behalf of two brothers who were seriously injured when they crashed into road construction equipment that was poorly lit, an excavator having swung its boom directly into oncoming traffic.
The two brothers were life-flighted from the scene to a nearby hospital where they have undergone several surgeries to treat serious brain injuries and multiple broken bones.
Our clients’ terrifying experience could have been avoided had the construction equipment been adequately lit and operated with care. The unexpected swing of an excavator's boom into oncoming traffic is a clear indication of negligence and lack of adherence to safety protocols.
Brain injuries are particularly distressing, as they can have long-lasting, often irreversible consequences affecting cognition, behavior, and overall quality of life. In addition to the physical trauma, the emotional and psychological repercussions of such a severe accident can be profoundly challenging for both victims and their families. As they grapple with the aftermath, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and potential long-term care needs add to the burden.
In filing this suit in Harris County, Arnold & Itkin is committed to ensuring that the brothers receive the justice they deserve. However, beyond seeking compensation for our clients, we also aim to shed light on the systemic issues in the road construction industry. Proper training, rigorous safety measures, and thorough supervision are non-negotiable standards that every construction company should uphold.
