Burn Victim Sues Black Elk Energy over Injuries from Oil Platform Explosion

A worker who suffered disfiguring burns in a deadly explosion last year on an oil production platform in the Gulf of Mexico is suing Black Elk Energy LLC, the Wood Group USA Inc. and others based on claims that their negligence led to his horrific injuries. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Renato Dominguez by attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin and Noah Wexler of Arnold & Itkin LLP and Reda Hicks at Diamond McCarthy LLP in Galveston County Court at Law. Mr. Dominguez claims the companies in charge of the platform failed to properly train and supervise workers; didn't provide adequate safety equipment or medical treatment; didn't inspect the platform; and violated federal labor laws and other regulations. Mr. Dominguez, who was working as a pipefitter at the production site, is one of several Filipino workers injured in the Nov. 16, 2012, explosion that left three men dead. After treatment in a hospital in Baton Rouge, La., he has been recovering in Galliano, La.
