The widow of a construction worker, who died last month when a building collapsed on him, has filed a wrongful death suit against Townhaven Construction and Stellar Staffing Inc., a subcontractor, and the job placement firm that hired him. It was alleged that the Defendants sent the worker to an unsafe jobsite. The 24-year-old worker was killed, and two other construction workers were injured, when a building at a former HouTex Inn collapsed during renovation on April 14th. Construction workers were replacing joists on the first floor of the building when the top floor began to shift. The building ultimately collapsed. According to reports, the structure had little bracing to stop the movement.
