Arnold & Itkin recently filed suit in Harris County, Texas on behalf of an oilfield worker who was injured while helping move a rig in New Mexico. Our client had two of his fingers severed because the company that owned the rig did not provide the correct equipment or manning to complete the task assigned to our client. Such catastrophic injuries alter a victim’s life permanently and can result in millions of dollars in medical expenses and future care.
It is each company's responsibility to provide workers with safety equipment to prevent accidents like this from occurring. Companies who fail to provide employees with a safe workplace should be held liable for the damage caused by their negligent behavior. The oilfield accident attorneys at Arnold & Itkin look forward to forcing this company to own up to the irreversible damage and pain they've caused to our client and their own employees.
