Man Sues Employer After Scaffolding Accident

On September 7, 2022, a construction worker filed a petition to initiate a lawsuit in the Harris County District Court against Century Communities Inc. and Orlando Flores as a result of injuries he sustained while working on scaffolding at a construction site in Harris County, Texas. The man alleges the defendants were negligent in failing to provide adequate safety equipment, and failing to inspect, repair, or warn him of the hazard. He alleges that this negligence is what caused him to suffer serious injuries.

On April 20, 2022, according to the lawsuit, the man was working at a construction site at the direction of the defendants. As he was working, the scaffolding below him suddenly collapsed. This collapse of the scaffolding caused him to fall several feet to the ground. The worker suffered serious bodily injuries and damages due to the impact of the fall, including but not limited to injuries to his knee and other parts of his body.

In the lawsuit, the man alleges that Century Communities Inc. and Orlando Flores also failed to ensure their worksite was reasonably safe, failed to follow local and federal regulations, and/or knowingly disregarded his safety as an employee.

The man claims that at the time of the incident in question, the defendants had a duty to keep their worksite in a reasonably safe condition. Amongst other factors, the man claims that due to the condition of the site and the state of the equipment provided to him, Century Communities Inc. and Orlando Flores were negligent.

He now seeks monetary relief and compensation for damages resulting from his fall, including disfigurement, suffered impairment, incurred medical expenses, and lost earnings, among others.
