Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and another attorney from Arnold & Itkin have filed suit on behalf of a wrongfully injured oilfield worker from Bexar County. This specific lawsuit is going against a large oil contractor that is based in San Antonio, Texas as well as an oilfield consulting company from Wyoming. While on the job the Plaintiff was severely injured after by struck by a pair of pipe tongs, and it resulted in both kidney and back injuries. Unfortunately, the damages done to his kidneys were so severe that the victim was forced to have one removed in order to treat the injury. Additionally, due to being struck by the equipment, the Plaintiff incurred serious vertebrae fractures as well.
Industry accidents can result in serious injuries and at times, death. Those involved in this occupation are continually being placed at risk which is why it is the employer's responsibility all the more to provide the safest environment for their workers. Equipment in work places such as the oilfield can have devastating affects if used improperly or carelessly. For this very reason, it is always the employer's responsibility to ensure that all workers are properly trained in order to keep these preventable incidents from taking place.
Oilfield workers are legally entitled to receive compensation when they are injured on the job, though it is not uncommon that these necessities will not be met by either their place of employment or the insurance companies.
