HOUSTON — A Harris County man is suing a construction company, alleging his ankle was broken during work.
Jose Louis Amador filed a complaint April 30 in Harris County District Court against Webber LLC and Webber Materials & Equipment LLC, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint on Aug. 29, 2018, Amador was cutting wire on a concrete removal project on the state Highway 249. The suit says an excavator operator approached Amador and started to pull away a concrete barrier, which contained steel that had not been cut.
Amador says the operator pinned his foot with the concrete barrier and steel rod, breaking the plaintiff's ankle and sending him to the hospital. The suit says the plaintiff suffered physical pain and impairment.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant failed to properly train and supervise employees.
Amador seeks relief of more than $1 million, actual and exemplary damages, interest, costs of court and all other just relief. He is represented by attorneys Benny Agosto Jr. and Lena B. Laurenzo of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz in Houston.
