After hearing of the injury of their loved one, a family contacted Kurt Arnold and
Jason Itkin immediately in order to fight for the compensation their family deserved after a tragic
workplace accident. The victim was a turnaround worker who had just arrived on a plant site with a team of people in order to conduct the site turnover. However, the company was required to fully disclose all possible
dangers on the site that the crew needed to be aware of, and yet they did not address the many hidden dangers that still were present at the plant. As a result, after just a few days of work one person was injured on the site due to the very dangers that the plant kept concealed from the team. Arnold & Itkin then filed suit against those responsible and they were able to reach a confidential settlement for $11.75 million on behalf of the victim and his family for his pain and suffering. This settlement was agreed upon within a year of the client's initial accident.
A plant or refinery turnover is a blanket term that includes numerous site inspections and testing as well as the necessary repairs or replacements. What makes this process different than a simple safety inspection is the fact that the entire work site will have to be shut down in order to complete the turnover officially. In many cases his will cost the plant a lot of money in order to stop their production, but this is a necessary schedule event that must take place. It is because e of this that it is imperative the process be done accurately and thoroughly, with full disclosure of the site to the team of turnovers. When this doesn't occur, workers are hurt, just like the victim mentioned above.
