Arnold & Itkin is currently representing a young oilfield worker who sustained serious injuries while working on a drilling rig. He will never work again because of his employer's failure to perform routine maintenance on the rig. After a hinge failed, our client fell over twenty feet. Because of his injuries, he has no way to support his growing family.
The oil industry is one of the most dangerous job sectors in the United States. The law requires that every employer create and maintain a safe work environment for their employers. Companies in the oil industry should be extra vigilant because they know how dangerous their job sites are. Our client’s employer failed to maintain their drilling rig and now he will pay the price for the rest of his life.
Arnold & Itkin will fight to hold our client’s employer responsible for failing to create a safe workspace. Our team of oilfield accident attorneys will not settle for less than this man and his family deserves. The case was filed in Harris County, Texas.
