In August 2015, Attorneys Kyle Findley and Kurt Arnold successfully negotiated
$9 million for our client. He suffered from second- and third-degree burns
as a result of a severe fall while working at a Texas plant. The worker,
a Louisiana native, fell through an open hole—a hole which the plant
managers and contractors knew was a dangerous risk, but did not barricade anyway.
As a result of their negligence, the plant employee sought out help from
Arnold & Itkin LLP, a firm known for fighting for the rights of industrial
workers. Our attorneys backed up our reputation for being fierce negotiators—over
the course of 10 depositions, Kurt and Kyle demonstrated the strength
of our client’s case effectively and aggressively. Only one week
before trial was scheduled to begin, the plant offered a settlement of
$9 million, which will go towards helping our client recover.
We are proud that our firm has yet again ensured the financial security
of another injured industrial worker. As one of the most important sectors
of the American economy, industrial manufacturing is both crucial and
in high demand for skilled workers. When people put their lives on the
line to make a living, we believe that those workers should be protected
by the law. Arnold & Itkin LLP will continue to fight for the rights
and compensation of industrial workers all over Texas and the United States.
