Construction worker sustains injuries from 'energized' saw, pursues legal action against employer

By John Suayan | Jul 20, 2018

HOUSTON – A construction worker alleges he was injured by a saw he was using and has filed a lawsuit, according to recent Harris County District Court records.

In court documents filed against T&R Construction, Inc. on July 19 in the Harris County 334th District Court, Luis Rutiaga says the tool in question “remained energized somehow” when he sat it down after cutting a 2X4 last Feb. 8 and “ended up cutting his toes.”

The suit faults the defendant for bypassing the safety guard on the saw.

Consequently, Rutiaga seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

M. Paul Skabranek and Betty Feng of the law firm Pierce Skabranek PLLC in Houston are representing the plaintiff.
