The Ammons Law Firm Files Lawsuit for Man Severely Injured in a Preventable Oil Rig Accident

Fort Bend County, Texas – The Ammons Law Firm has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a man who sustained severe injuries in a preventable oil rig accident. The incident, which occurred at an Energy Transfer terminal near Houston, Texas, involved multiple negligent companies whose careless actions led to the plaintiff’s injuries. The lawsuit names four defendants: Energy Transfer LP, Energy Transfer Mont Belvieu NGLs LP. Hanzik Hydraulics, Inc, and WSP USA, INC.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff was working as an oil rig operator on a wellhead controlled by Energy Transfer LP and owned under its subsidiary Energy Transfer Mont Belvieu NGLs LP. Hanzik Hydraulics, Inc. was hired to assist with the work performed at the wellhead and erected a floor deck over the wellhead without proper coordination, obstructing the plaintiff’s workspace and preventing him from safely securing his mobile platform.

Additionally, WSP USA, INC., hired to oversee safety compliance, failed to adequately manage and oversee the work performed at the wellhead, contributing to the unsafe conditions.

The lawsuit alleges negligence on the part of each defendant, outlining specific breaches of duty and failures to ensure a safe work environment. This includes negligence in hiring, supervising, training, and retaining employees. The plaintiff suffered serious injuries as a result of these negligent actions.

The Ammons Law Firm seeks recovery in excess of $1,000,000 on behalf of the plaintiff and is committed to achieving justice for the suffering endured. Founding attorney Rob Ammons emphasized the seriousness of the case, stating, “A man has been severely injured due to the reckless actions of multiple corporations. Such disregard for safety cannot be tolerated.”
