The oilfield injury attorneys at Arnold & Itkin LLP recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a worker who was seriously injured while working on a land rig. While performing work on the rig floor, our client was struck by a drill pipe because the company failed to properly supervise drilling operations. As a result, our client suffered serious injuries to his back and has already undergone surgery.
Back injuries are the most common workplace injury in the United States. Serious back injuries can impair mobility, leave patients with lifelong pain, and render victims unable to earn a living. Our client was injured as a direct result of the defendant’s negligence, and he ought to be compensated for the medical costs, lost earnings, and pain he will suffer for the rest of his life. We also hope this lawsuit will compel the employer to rethink their practices, ensuring this doesn’t happen to anyone else.
Arnold & Itkin looks forward to helping another injured worker get the compensation he deserves and the medical treatment he needs.
The case was filed in Harris County, Texas.
