Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and another attorney with Arnold & Itkin LLP filed suit on behalf of a severely
injured industrial worker who suffered on the job. The plaintiff was an employee of a broiler company, and while on the job he suffered from
second degree burn wounds covering a vast majority of his body. The suit alleges that the incident was a premises defect on behalf of the property owner who likely did not properly cap the water/stream line in the broiler system which eventually led to an overflow of the boiling water and steam. The plaintiff was unfortunately exposed to the extremely hot waters and steam which resulted in the burns on his face, neck, arms, torso and thighs. Today, the plaintiff remains in the hospital for treatments for his burn injuries. The case is currently pending n Harris County, Texas.
Premises claims are not uncommon for those working on industrial sites due to the nature of the job. This, however, does not hold the employer any less responsible for the devastating incidents that occur. Employer negligence for maintenance on their worksites can quickly result in the pain and suffering of another person, and at times causing life changing damages. In the case of the victim above, second degree burns have damaged a large majority of his body, also resulting in extensive amounts of pain. While a third degree burn is categorized as much more severe, because of the nerve damage that is done, doctors claim the victims experience less physical pain than a second or first degree burn.
