Oil Rig Worker Files Lawsuit After Slip on Anti-Freeze

An oil rig worker has filed a lawsuit against his employers after he slipped on anti-freeze and was injured.

According to New Orleans federal court documents, Dennis Moreau filed a lawsuit against Apache Corp., Wood Group Production Services Inc., Shamrock Management, and Professional Services Industries Inc., on January 20. The lawsuit claims Moreau was working as a rigger aboard a drilling rig on November 8, 2010, when the accident occurred. Moreau claims he was walking down a set of stairs when he slipped on an anti-freeze and injured his spine, shoulder, and arm.

The lawsuit claims the defendants failed to provide a safe place to work, proper equipment and personnel, and warn of the dangerous and unsafe conditions. The defendants are also accused of breaching its legally imposed duties of care and of strict liability and premises liability.

Moreau is seeking more than $950,000 in damages for physical, mental, loss of wages, fringe benefits, wage-earning capacity, physical disability, medical expenses, interests, court costs, and emotional pain and suffering.
