Arnold & Itkin recently filed suit on behalf of a young man who was working to support his family at a New Mexico drilling site. The well’s owner failed to repair an unsafe walkway, and our client severely injured his left knee when the floor gave way beneath him. Now, his doctors have informed him that he will require knee replacements for the rest of his life. He will likely never be able to provide for his family as he had done in the past.
Working in the nation’s oilfields isn’t just one of the most important jobs for the economy; it’s one of the most dangerous. When employers fail to perform basic maintenance at their wells, they place workers at even more risk than they already face. This is unacceptable, and negligent companies should be held accountable for their behavior.
Arnold & Itkin’s oilfield accident lawyers are proud to represent hardworking people who have their life unfairly changed by their employer’s lack of commitment to safety. We’ll fight for the compensation this man needs just as we’ve done to obtain past settlements and verdicts.
