Arnold & Itkin’s personal injury attorneys recently filed a case on behalf of a young man who was thrown from a truck while loading pipe at a Texas oil and gas rig. He sustained devastating injuries to his shoulder, eye, and other parts of his body.
Unfortunately, oil rig accidents are not an uncommon occurrence, especially in the booming Texas oil economy. Our oil rig accident attorneys have seen a repeating pattern of employers ignoring employee safety while chasing profits. Those that do not take the proper steps to protect oilfield workers must be held accountable for their negligent actions.
Accidents are avoidable—making sure employers know that they must answer for negligence will help encourage a safer environment for all workers in the oil industry. Arnold & Itkin is proud to represent this young worker who was catastrophically injured because of the reckless practices of his employer. The lawsuit was filed in Harris County, Texas.
