Fitzsimmons Law Firm Settles Lawsuit On Behalf of Worker Injured in an Oil and Gas Field Accident
The Oil and Gas Accident Attorneys at the Fitzsimmons Law Firm recently settled a lawsuit on behalf of a worker injured in a gas field accident. The plaintiff was a well test operator who had been contracted by the site operator to supply various services on the well pad. The plaintiff was injured as a direct result of the well site operator's failure to maintain the well site in a safe working condition. The well site operator also failed to provide the plaintiff with appropriate site specific safety training. As a result of the underlying oil and gas accident, the plaintiff snapped several bones in his ankle and tore multiple tendons and ligaments in his foot and ankle thereby causing him to suffer permanent injuries.
The plaintiff asserted causes of action against the well site operator and sought damages for his medical bills, future medical treatment, lost wages and future lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of capacity to enjoy life and engage in normal activities. The lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of Marshall County, West Virginia in the 2nd Judicial Circuit. The 2nd Judicial Circuit consists of Marshall, Wetzel and Tyler Counties.
