A landscaper is suing the three owners of the landscaping business where he worked after losing his fingers in an accident. (UltimateTomball.com)

The man filed suit on Oct. 5 in the Harris Country District Court, claiming negligence.

His was injured after we was asked to work on a lawnmower in need of repair.  His fingers on one hand were completely severed in the lawnmower blade on March 26, 2010.

The victim's lawyer claimed that one of the business owners threw gasoline in the plaintiff's face to control the bleeding.

The victim is seeking damages for his injuries that include but are not limited to:

Hospital Bills

Actual Damages

Special Damages

Physical/ Psychological Pain

Court Costs

Construction accidents like these are all-too-common and often Workers' Compensation does not provide enough compensation for long-term or permanent injuries associated with many serious construction site accidents. There may, however, be other legal options available to you.
