HOUSTON – A worker is seeking $1 million from the owners of a property after he fell while working and was paralyzed.
Pedro Xep Delores filed a complaint on Oct. 24 in the Harris County District Court against Continental Properties Co., et al. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 8, 2017, he was working on a job site in Austin owned by the defendants when he fell from a dangerous height and landed on debris left on the ground. He alleges he sustained severe and lasting injuries to his back, neck, and other parts of the body that resulted in paralysis as a result of the fall.
