Spring Branch company, Tomball builder blamed for accident at Memorial construction site
A Spring Branch company and Tomball-area builder are being sued over claims they failed to offer truck drivers safe passage at a Memorial-area construction site.
Jose and Maria Rojas, individually and on behalf of their children, filed a lawsuit Aug. 16 in the Harris County District Court against Durotech, of Spring Branch, Burt's Construction, of Tomball, John Paull II Catholic School, of Memorial, and the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, citing negligence and gross negligence.
The Rojas family says on Feb. 2, 2011, Jose Rojas suffered serious injuries while delivering fill dirt to a construction site at John Paul II Catholic School, located at 1400 Parkway Plaza in Memorial. The accident occurred when an unsafe ramp collapsed as he drove a dump truck over it, according to the brief.
The suit alleges the defendants had been warned that the ramp was a hazard, but failed to take action.
The plaintiffs are seeking damages and court costs. They are being represented in the case by Houston attorney Andrew Lemanski.
