Arnold & Itkin recently filed a lawsuit against a pipeline company and a construction company that failed to maintain a safe workplace for employees. Our client sustained injuries while working to dig new trenches for pipelines. He trusted that those in charge of it fulfilled their legal obligations to keep him safe. However, as our client was digging trenches for new pipelines, debris fell into where he was working and struck him. The man was knocked unconscious and sustained serious injuries to his legs, neck, and back. His injuries have required extensive medical treatment, including surgery.
As mentioned above, owners of worksites and the companies that operate within them have a legal obligation to protect workers from harm. Taking care of workers isn’t just a requirement of the law, it’s the ethical thing to do. Now, our client faces an extensive recovery and has lost wages that he deserves compensation for.
At Arnold & Itkin, our work accident lawyers are always ready to fight for the recovery that clients need and deserve. We believe that the only way to stop this from happening to other workers is by holding negligent companies accountable. We've recovered billions of dollars for those who've turned to us, and we'll fight to help this man restabilize his life. Our team filed this case in Harris County, Texas.
