Arnold & Itkin Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Caj Boatright, Roland Christensen, and Joseph McGowin filed suit in Midland, Texas on behalf of a West Texas man who was severely injured while working on a poorly maintained compressor. The compressor failed and caused a pipe connected to the compressor to strike him, causing severe injuries.
Faulty equipment is both the responsibility of the manufacturer and the employer. All workers, including our client, have the right to work with safe, reliable equipment. In a workplace as inherently dangerous as a West Texas oilfield, good equipment is the difference between life and death. Employers are required to spend whatever is necessary to maintain, repair, or replace equipment like the faulty compressor; when they don't, people like our client suffer the consequences.
Arnold & Itkin is proud to represent those working in the oilfields in West Texas and across the country.
