$3.5 Million Settlement in Texas Oil Field Accident Lawsuit

Collen A. Clark obtained a $3.5 million settlement in a Texas oil field accident lawsuit, on behalf of an oil field worker who was injured.

The settlement was awarded just four months after The Clark Firm, LLP obtained an $8.5 million award for a client injured in a trucking accident, In the last 20 months, we have achieved over $22 million in compensation for our clients.

In this case, an oil field worker from South Texas was working for a Texas oil drilling company in Mississippi on a pipeline striation job. Over time, oil pipelines can develop fatigue striation and corrosion. Our client was a welder who was responsible for heating a pipe that was suspended at a 45º angle.

Unfortunately, the wooden cradle that was suspending the pipeline broke, causing the pipe to fall on our client’s legs. He suffered severe injuries.

At mediation, our client was only offered $500,000 for his leg injuries. The case went to trial, and Collen A. Clark negotiated a $3.5 million settlement for the injured worker.
