Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and another attorney from Arnold & Itkin have recently filed suit against an offshore platform owner on behalf of a worker who was injured on the job. The worker wounded his leg as he attempted to transfer to another platform with the rope swing but was hindered because of the new railing that was added in by platform owner over the designated landing area.
Due to the new railing, the worker was required to use another deck for landing which was a much more dangerous option and resulted in his own bodily injury in the process. Not only did the landing harm his knees, but also other parts of his body due to the impact of the unsafe conditions. At this point the plaintiff has already undergone knee surgery because of the accident. The case is currently pending in the Southern District of Texas.
