Arnold & Itkin has filed suit on behalf of a floor hand who suffered severe crush injuries when a 400 lb. object fell aboard the drill ship he was working on in the Gulf of Mexico.
This tragic accident occurred because the oil company failed to provide the appropriate training, equipment, and personnel for the movement of heavy equipment on the drill ship. “When you are working on a vessel it is very important for your employer to not only provide safe policies and procedures for their workers, but also to ensure that adequate manpower and equipment is used to perform a task,” our attorneys said in a statement.
Our client suffered severe injuries to his legs, knees, back, neck, and torso, rendering him unable to work or support his family. The lives of an entire family have been changed forever due to this company’s negligence.
Our offshore injury lawyers look forward to fighting on behalf of our client to hold the responsible parties accountable for their failures. This suit was filed in Harris County, Texas.
