A Texas jury recently awarded four men working on an oil rig $1.3 million in compensation for brain injuries suffered during a worksite accident. A news report by KGBT-TV in Texas reported that the electricians were working in the engine room of an oil rig that was dry docked. Another work crew accidentally caused the engine room to fill with carbon dioxide as the crew performed work on the fire suppression system for the oil rig. Two of the injured workers suffered serious brain injuries after being deprived of oxygen for 15 minutes. The four workers were found unconscious, foaming at the mouth, and experiencing convulsions. This case raises a number of issues about workers' compensation and personal injury claims arising out of a workplace injury. Two of the men are permanently disabled because of their injuries.
