Our Experience in Oil and Gas
One of the many cases that our experts have worked on in the oil and gas industry involved a failure in the braking system of a rig. The person operating the controls described losing braking ability, and losing control of the block which weighed in excess of 1,000 lbs. The person on the rig floor noticed the falling block and jumped from the rig floor to avoid the possibility of being crushed. He suffered major injuries to his leg.
Our expert was able to show that there were several safer alternative designs and that the failure that occurred was foreseeable. The case settled shortly after our expert issued his report.
