Arnold & Itkin Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, Kala Sellers, and Adam Lewis recently filed a case against multiple parties involved with the construction of a new hotel. The lawsuit is in response to an accident which occurred at the future site of Hotel ZaZa in Austin, Texas. The location is scheduled to open during the summer of 2019. Our client suffered severe injuries after falling from a significant height. Injuries sustained by our client include a broken leg, spinal injury, and chipped teeth.
Distressingly, the man had no fall protection which would have prevented this devastating accident. Falling is the leading cause of death for American workers at construction sites. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, falling caused 39.2 percent of all construction industry deaths in 2017. Because of this fact, property owners must protect visitors from the dangers of falling, especially when their site is under construction and filled with potential dangers.
Arnold & Itkin’s premises liability attorneys have a proven history of holding property owners responsible for failing to provide a safe environment. We will fight to win the compensation that this man needs for his injuries, just as we've done to obtain victories for other clients. Our lawyers filed this case in Travis County, Texas.
