Arnold & Itkin attorneys Jason Itkin and Trent Shelton filed suit in Midland, Texas on behalf of a severely injured oilfield worker.
Oil sites are already rife with serious hazards and dangers, and it is up to managers and overseers to minimize risks and perform their duties with care in order to prevent avoidable risks. In this instance, an operator failed to oversee the operations in order to ensure that they were carried out safely. This left this oil field worker, a husband, with a broken collar bone, fractured ribs, and a broken shoulder blade.
"Far too often we see oil companies cutting corners to get jobs done. This incident was no different. Our client was severely injured and had to be rushed to the hospital by helicopter. His injuries are injuries that he will endure for the rest of his life. We look forward to getting justice for him," our attorneys said in a statement.
This suit was filed in Midland County.
