Arnold & Itkin recently filed a case on behalf of a Bay City, Texas pipefitter who sustained serious injuries during a preventable accident. Our client was working inside a large furnace when he fell because of a large gap in the scaffolding he was using. He had to be airlifted from the scene because of life-altering injuries to his back, legs, knees, and hand. Since the accident, he’s required multiple surgeries and will likely require more procedures in the future.
Scaffolding accidents are one of the most common sources of work-related accidents. They happen when companies fail to uphold safety standards, often because they want to save time and money. When companies behave this negligently, workers are the ones who pay the steepest price for it.
Our client is a father and provider—his hard work has enabled his family to make ends meet for years. Now, he’s struggling to put his life back together, make a living, and move forward from this preventable accident. Our industrial accident lawyers are eager to help our client and send a message to the companies responsible that enough is enough. This kind of reckless conduct cannot be tolerated.
