Oilfield attorneys at Arnold & Itkin filed suit on behalf of the family of a young man who tragically died at a New Mexico drilling location in October 2021. Our firm believes that this loss—like the other losses we keep seeing in the oil patch—was preventable. We thus filed suit against Tap Rock Operating, the owner/operator of the drilling location. Oil and gas companies like Tap Rock must be held accountable when they put profits over their workers, destroying families like our clients with their negligence.
Arnold & Itkin is proud to represent this family and hold those responsible for this death fully accountable for their actions.
The suit was filed in Dallas County.
