Arnold & Itkin filed a case on behalf of a man who sustained serious injuries while working on a land rig in Carlsbad, New Mexico. The man was working as a motorman when a pipe that he was working on broke and hit him on the head. Unfortunately, the man suffered catastrophic injuries and was left in a coma for 18 days. He also suffered severe hearing loss, and he has been unable to work since the incident.
Oil rig employers have a responsibility to keep the workplace safe and train employees to prevent accidents like this from occurring. They also have a responsibility to frequently maintain equipment, machinery, and pipes. This oil rig employer failed to do so, causing our client to suffer injuries that will affect him for the rest of his life. The oilfield accident attorneys at Arnold & Itkin are filing suit in Harris County, Texas, and are eager to get the man the compensation he deserves for his injuries.
