Roofing Accident – Negligence
We represented an employee of a roofing company who climbed on to the roof of a commercial building in Houston, Texas in order to perform an estimate of necessary roof repairs at the request of the occupant of the building. There were a number of flat skylight panels on the roof of the building, including several that had been painted with a silver metallic coating to match the color of the roof. The employee stepped on one of the painted skylights and fell approximately 20 feet, thereby suffering severe injuries. After filing suit on behalf of the employee, prior to trial we obtained a substantial confidential settlement on behalf of the employee.
