Benjamin Chapman filed a complaint on April 4 in the Harris County District Court against Anadarko Petroleum Corp. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov 28, 2016, he was injured when he fell through an oil well at defendant's premises that was not covered or barricaded. He alleges he suffered significant injuries that resulted in diminished earning capacity and medical care and pharmaceutical expenses and costs.
