HOUSTON – A Harris County resident is seeking damages from a company after he fell from a ladder.
Jesus Romero filed a complaint on Nov. 7 in the Harris County District Court against Texas Professional Claims and Construction LLC alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 21, he was performing work at a home site as arranged by the defendant when he fell from a ladder. He alleges he sustained serious injuries resulting in medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life as a result of the fall.
