Arnold & Itkin has filed lawsuits against multiple oil and gas companies for their involvement in incidents that left workers with life-changing injuries.
Our attorneys are representing a contract worker who suffered burns all over his body, broken bones, and amputations as a result of a pipeline explosion in Louisiana. We are also helping another worker find justice after experiencing severe injuries in a fire on a land rig in Louisiana, and we have filed suit on behalf of a worker who suffered spinal cord injuries and broken bones in a scaffolding incident.
Oil and gas companies have an undeniable obligation to maintain safe worksites for their crews and contract workers. Pipeline and oilfield work may have inherent hazards, but these can be managed and minimized with proper training, personal protective equipment, maintenance, and planning. There is no excuse for explosions, fires, and defective scaffolding at any job site.
With our extensive experience representing workers in the oil and gas industry, our team at Arnold & Itkin stands ready to hold all at-fault parties accountable for their role in failing to provide safe workplaces for these injured workers.
These lawsuits were filed in Harris County, Texas, and East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana.
