Yes, and we have experience winning them. Not long ago, our board-certified attorney Brian Beckcom represented a home inspector who had suffered a terrible on-the-job injury in Texas. The victim was inspecting the attic of a home under construction when the ladder he was using shifted, causing him to fall from the attic down to the first floor, where he was found barely conscious and unable to move.
The victim had suffered severe injuries to his neck, back, chest, and abdomen. Unable to walk, he underwent spinal fusion surgery and suffered incapacitating pain. He was later diagnosed with a closed head injury, and was told by his doctor that he could not work, drive or use tools until he had substantially recovered.
Our attorneys found that the victim had been injured because there were no safety rails in place during the inspection, as required by both OSHA and D.R. Horton's construction manual. The defendants, D.R. Horton-Emerald Ltd. and subcontractor Azteca Construction Inc., blamed the victim for the accident, stating that he should have noticed the rails were missing.
Our DR Horton work accident attorneys got the victim and his family the compensation they deserved. We proved that the project manager on the site knew that there were no safety rails installed, and he failed to warn the victim or cancel the inspection. The victim received an out-of-court settlement of $650,000.
