When Oilfield Accidents Change Lives, Arnold & Itkin Fights for Answers. Serving Nationwide.
When someone works in an oilfield, there are countless ways they can be injured. Heavy machinery, toxic substances, and the constant risk of fires and explosions make this one of the most dangerous industries. Just because a job is dangerous, however, doesn’t mean accidents are acceptable. Yet, each year, companies let workers sustain life-changing injuries because they’ve deemed that the profits outweigh the risks. When this behavior hurts workers and their families, they turn to Arnold & Itkin.
