Arnold & Itkin Files Lawsuit for Injured Industrial Worker

Posted By Arnold & Itkin || 22-Dec-2014

Arnold & Itkin industrial injury attorneys Kurt Arnold, Caj Boatright and Kala Flittner filed a lawsuit today in the District Court for Harris County, Texas on behalf of an injured worker. The plaintiff was injured while working at an industrial site in Galveston, Texas when third party scaffolding workers attempted to modify a scaffolding leg using only rope. While attempting to alter the scaffolding, the pressure was so great that the rope broke, causing scaffolding parts to swing toward the plaintiff and crush his thumb. To make matters worse, after the incident the facility owner sent the plaintiff to a selected medical provider who simply applied stitches in order to declassify the severity of the incident. However, days after the incident the plaintiff sought medical treatment from a provider he chose who determined the bone in his thumb was completely shattered and required emergency surgery.

The lawsuit names Excel Modular Scaffolding and Leasing Company, Marathon Oil Corporation, and Marathon Petroleum Corporation as defendants. The suit alleges that the defendants failed to properly train its workers and supply them with proper equipment. The plaintiff also alleges that his employer failed to provide him with adequate medical treatment after suffering the injury to his hand.

Arnold & Itkin is proud to represent workers who were injured on the job due to another party's negligence.
