Leroy Rodriguez filed a complaint on May 2 in the Harris County District Court against Bos Solutions Inc., Sidewinder Drilling LLC and RSP Permian LLC alleging negligence and other counts.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 14, 2017, he suffered severe and disabling injuries at the defendant's worksite at Sidewinder Drilling Rig 127, when a large pipe fell from the drilling rig and struck him. He alleges he suffered severe and disabling injuries to his head, neck, back and other parts of his body.
