Employers are required to take steps to make sure their worksites are safe and equipped with injury-prevention measures. For employees who work on scaffolding or at a height, fall prevention is one of the most important measures an employer can take—falls are one of the four leading worksite fatality causes in the U.S.
In our most recent case, our client was working on a new home development project as a painter when he fell two stories, sustaining serious injuries in the process. Our firm believes that both the employer and the housing developers are to blame. Neither party took the necessary steps to prevent falls, which led to our client’s harm.
Arnold & Itkin is proud to fight on our client’s behalf against both negligent companies. More importantly, we are honored to help our client get the medical care and legal closure he deserves, while showing his employer that workers are not expendable. This case was filed in Harris County, Texas.
