Arnold & Itkin has filed a lawsuit against C2 Logistics Solutions LLC and Tex-Al Freight Services, LLC in connection with catastrophic injuries our client suffered while working as an employee for those companies. Notably, both companies failed to subscribe to Texas Workers’ Compensation to protect their employees in the event of an injury like the one our client suffered.
On the date of the incident, a crane operator negligently failed to control his load and hit the wind turbine where client was working. The crane accident made our client fall a significant distance from the turbine. He was life-flighted to a nearby hospital and diagnosed with broken ribs, a ruptured spleen, bilateral lung collapse, lower extremity injuries, and spinal injuries. He has already undergone surgery and is fighting to save an ankle from amputation.
Crane operation is a dangerous profession, so the companies that utilize cranes need to exercise maximum caution when hiring, training, and using crane operators. However, more importantly, companies that put workers near cranes or work at great heights have zero excuse for not offering workers’ compensation. These companies not only failed to keep our client safe, but they failed to provide him with the financial security that might’ve provided relief to him and his family. Arnold & Itkin is proud to fight for our client to get him the justice that he deserves and the medical care he absolutely needs.
This suit was filed against C2 Logistics Solutions LLC and Tex-Al Freight Services, LLC in Parker County, Texas.
