Arnold & Itkin recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of an injured worker. Our client sustained his injuries while working on a land rig in the oil industry. He was performing work on the rig floor and, since the company failed to properly supervise the drilling operations, our client was knocked down a significant amount of feet to the rig floor. Because of this accident, the worker has back injuries and suffers from the effects of a traumatic brain injury.
Oil rigs can be one of the most dangerous worksites in America. Besides dealing with toxic and flammable substances, workers are constantly at risk from heavy machinery, dangerous equipment, and falls. Because they’re known to be so dangerous, the owners and operators of oil rigs are responsible for making sure their workers are always protected. In this instance, our client's employer failed to do this and he's now paying the steepest consequences for it.
The oilfield accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin know what it takes to obtain the results that clients need and deserve. We’ve obtained billions of dollars in settlement and verdicts for them, and we'll fight for the compensation this man deserves and needs.
We filed this case in Harris County, Texas.
