A man is suing Murphy Oil Corp., seeking between $200,000 and $1 million for what he asserts were injuries he sustained outside a Galveston gas station.

Houston-based attorney Joseph Corteguera filed the lawsuit Jan. 29 on behalf of Benjamin Hernandez in the 56th District Court against Murphy Oil USA Inc., asserting Hernandez suffered serious injuries in May 2018 when he slipped and fell on fuel pooled on the ground.
