Arnold & Itkin filed suit on behalf of a man whose leg was shattered from a ladder fall. Though his employer directed him to use this unsafe equipment, it has failed to ensure that he is receiving the medical care and financial relief this devastating injury requires.
When any employee is injured on the job, the employer is obligated to provide for the employee’s medical care and lost wages. This is especially true if the employee was injured conducting his “normal duties,” which certainly includes anything the employer directly asked of him. As a dutiful worker, he did what his employer asked—and he’s being forced to pay the full price for it.
It’s not only a legal obligation, it’s an ethical one. His employer should provide workers with safe equipment, reasonably safe work environments, and a means for paying for their medical care when things go wrong. It’s the right thing to do. Unfortunately, many companies do not choose the do the right thing until they’re given no other choice. That’s why our Houston personal injury lawyers stepped in.
Arnold & Itkin looks forward to fighting for the justice our client deserves. The case was filed in DeWitt County.
