East End contractor blamed for fall
An East End contractor is being sued over claims his failure to provide a safe work environment caused a laborer to be injured.
Eulalio Membreno filed a lawsuit on July 18 in the Harris County District Court against Jose N. Mejia, of the East End, citing negligence.
