March 5, 2020 — The daughter of a Texas oil worker who died in a well blowout last month has filed a $1 million wrongful death lawsuit in Harris County District Court.
The lawsuit was filed against the company that owned the oil well, Chesapeake Energy Corp., as well as the oilfield service firms Eagle Pressure Control, Halliburton Co., and Forbes Energy Services.
The plaintiff, Madison H., is the daughter of Brad Hendrix, a man who died in the hospital several days after the explosion. He was employed as a well-intervention technical adviser at Eagle Pressure Control.
Chesapeake, the well owner, and the oilfield service companies are accused of failing to provide a safe work environment or adequate medical care to the workers who were injured in the explosion.
Three men died in the oilfield accident and a fourth man was severely injured.
Windell Beddingfield, 38, an employee of Eagle Pressure Control, died at the scene of the explosion. Brian Maldonado, a 25 year-old man from San Diego, Texas, died in the hospital a few days after the explosion occurred.
The well blowout occurred on January 29, about 75 miles east of Austin, Texas. The explosion was caused by a release of natural gas from an oil well during a major maintenance operation.
