Arnold & Itkin Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, Adam Lewis, and Kason Kimberley filed suit on behalf of an oilfield worker from Oklahoma. Our client was directed to lift a 700-pound part without the proper equipment while working in West Texas. The client, a 33-year-old man, sustained a painful back injury and is currently unable to return to work.
Oilfield work is one of the most dangerous jobs in the nation. Employers know this fact and should take every step needed to protect their workers. When a company fails to provide basic equipment, workers pay the steepest prices and suffer the most. No one should find themselves unable to work because they were trying to perform the duties of their job.
Arnold & Itkin’s oilfield accident lawyers will always be ready to hold the shale exploration industry accountable for failing to protect workers. We know how important oilfield work is and will never be satisfied knowing negligent companies are harming our nation’s workforce. We'll work to obtain the compensation this man deserves to recover from his injuries.
Our team filed this case in Travis County, Texas.
