Crystal Cigala is suing Townhaven Construction and Stellar Staffing, Incorporated, claiming they sent her husband, Ramiro Cigala, to an unsafe job site.

Ramiro was working in a building that was being renovated at the old Hou-Tex Hotel on the Gulf Freeway. Investigators say the building shifted, and didn't have enough bracing. Two workers were also hurt in the collapse.
