Texas Jury Awards $18 Million To Widow of Killed Worker

Share

A jury in Texas awarded $18 million in damages, including $10 million in punitive damages to the widow of Juan Perez who died on March 7, 2015, after falling through a skylight while repairing a roof for Rodriguez Trucking Company out of Mathis, Texas. The three-day trial was held in the 156th District Court of San Patricio County, Judge Patrick Flanagan presiding.

With no regard for the life of Juan Perez, the Defendant sent him to work on a roof with no fall protection equipment and no warning of the dangerous rusted condition which caused Perez to suddenly fall through roof, over 12 feet onto the concrete where he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Attorney Alex Hernandez tried a similar case in Brewster County obtaining the highest jury verdict in that court’s history in a work injury case happening at Sul Ross University. He has obtained similar verdicts, settlements, and awards.
