Sosa’s injury occurred on July 28, 2008, in Port Arthur, Texas, according to a report in The Southeast Texas Record. A pile of sheetrock stacked against a wall by another worker fell and pinned him underneath, resulting in medical bills that exceed $100,000.00. As a result of the injury, Sosa has lost the ability to use his left leg and is unable to work.
The work site injury lawsuit seeks up to $10 million in compensation for pain, suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, lost wages and medical costs.
