Doyle Dennis LLP recently filed suit on behalf of a client against two defendants, Parker Drilling Company D/B/A Parker Wellbore (“Parker Drilling”) and Exxon Mobil Corporation D/B/A Exxon Neftegas (“Exxon”).
Doyle Dennis LLP’s client seeks to hold Parker Drilling and Exxon accountable for their failure to provide adequate crew and equipment, and negligent hiring, training, supervision, and in other respects. In addition the defendants had subjective awareness of the risk involved, but never proceeded with conscious indifference to the rights, safety, and welfare of Doyle Dennis LLP client.
On or about October 17, 2021, Doyle Dennis LLP’s client was working for Parker Drilling on a platform, which is owned by Exxon, off the coast of Sakhalin Island. Due to the negligent equipment, maintenance, quality, and design of the staircase on the rig, the staircase was not attached to the tower. As a result, Doyle Dennis LLP’s client was required by Parker Drilling and Exxon to utilize the staircase in dangerous conditions. At the time of his injuries, the client was “picked up” by 150km/h wind and thrown. The client suffered injuries to the shoulder and body generally. The lawsuit further alleges that Parker Drilling and Exxon, by and through their employees and officers, were negligent in creating the dangerous conditions that proximately resulted in Doyle Dennis LLP’s client injuries and in failing to provide adequate crew and equipment, and negligent hiring, design, training, supervision, and in other respects.
