Los Compadres Pescadores, LLC v. Valdez (Opinion)Annotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the court of appeals finding a property owner liable for injuries the employees of its contractor sustained while working on the property, holding that the employees established their claim.
A jury found the property owner under both premises-liability and ordinary-negligence theories. The court of appeals affirmed the trial court's judgment in favor of the employees. On appeal, the property owner argued that the employees failed to submit legally sufficient evidence and failed to obtain the findings necessary to establish liability under chapter 95 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) chapter 95 applied to the employees' negligence claims; and (2) the evidence and jury findings supported the judgment against the property owner.
