$72 Million Recovery Obtained for Injured Oilfield Worker

Attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin, and Kurt Arnold were able to win a massive $72 million victory for our client after less than 2 years of preparation and investigation.

The companies responsible chose to settle with our client a week before trial was set to begin—giving him the financial security and access to medical care he needs. The settlement is potentially a record-setting size, which has compelled the companies involved to change their policies and ensure this never happens to another worker.

Attorney Cory Itkin aggressively pursued justice for our client, who was left severely and permanently injured as a result of an accident on the job. Our client was a truck driver and was unloading his cargo when he suffered a stroke. As a result, the cargo he was unloading fell on him, injuring him further. The defendants attempted to blame his injuries on being overweight or on unloading the cargo improperly, but Cory quickly rebutted their arguments. Our thorough trial preparation pressured them into settling with our client for $12 million—a massive sum that will go toward the constant care he now requires for basic daily tasks.
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $5,102,160.96.

$9.25 Million Recovered for Fire Victim’s Family

After a tragic traffic fire that took the life of an individual, a family hired Attorneys Jason Itkin & Noah Wexler from Arnold & Itkin.

$7 Million Achieved for Burn Victims

Arnold & Itkin’s legal team fought hard to obtain justice on behalf of four clients who had been severely injured in an oil refinery explosion. Our clients had been thrown into a nearby handrail and then covered in hot steam and coking material. As a result, and despite the protective gear they had been wearing at the time of the incident, they suffered burns to their faces, heads, backs, legs, and arms. We took on the case and were successful in holding the involved companies accountable. We recovered $7 million on their behalf.

Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $3,629,126.77.

$6.25 Million Obtained for Family of Man Killed While Working Offshore

Attorneys Cory Itkin and Jason Itkin negotiated a settlement of $6.25 million on behalf of a Mississippi family who lost a loved one in an offshore accident. The decedent had been a barge engineer who had suffered a heart attack while working off the Africa coast. It had taken several hours to get him to a cardiologist so that he could receive the necessary medical attention. Our firm filed a Jones Act lawsuit against the decedent’s employers. The defendant argued that they were not responsible for caring for the man’s heart attack and pointed out the difficulties in obtaining specialized medical treatment in remote locations. We were able to overcome those arguments and reach a settlement of $6.25 million that will help to ensure that the family will be taken care of. The case was pending in Harris County, Texas.

Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $2,582,566.13.

$5.5 Million Settlement Obtained for 4 Injured Workers

When four workers were injured on an industrial site, they needed attorneys who would secure their rights effectively—which is why they turned to Arnold & Itkin. Attorneys Jason Itkin, Noah Wexler, and Cory Itkin fought to secure a trial against our clients’ defendant, who is one of the largest companies in the nation. The defendant was fighting to get the trial dismissed entirely, but our firm creatively framed the case’s liability theory and convinced the judge to continue the trial. As a result, the defendant agreed to settle with our clients for $5.5 million during the jury selection process. We are proud of this result and are glad that our clients will be taken care of for the rest of their lives.

$3.9 Million Recovered for Injured Louisiana Rig Worker

Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Noah Wexler helped a Louisiana rig worker recover $3.9 million after suffering severe injuries to his neck and shoulders. We alleged that the injuries were due to the defendants’ failure to ensure that the scene was clear before bleeding off pressure through rig hoses. The defendants denied their liability and claimed the accident was the plaintiff’s fault. Our team took approximately 10 depositions before pushing for the case to be taken to court. Right before the jury was picked, the defendants raise their offer and settled.

Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $1,977,164.42.

$3.7 Million Obtained for Man Injured in Offshore Platform Fire

Attorney Cory Itkin represented a foreign worker injured when a fire broke out on the offshore platform that he was aboard. The fire broke out on the platform, located in the Gulf of Mexico, when one of our client’s coworkers began to weld without a hot work permit. The defendant argued that the fire was solely the fault of that coworker, who our client was not permitted to sue. There was additional complexity to the case as our client did not speak English very well. Despite these obstacles, Cory was able to reach a settlement after a week of trial for $3.7 million that will ensure our client, and his family, will receive the care that they need. The case was pending in the Eastern District of Louisiana.

Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $1,740,031.34.

Attorney's Kurt Arnold & Noah Wexler obtained a $3,500,000.00 settlement on behalf of two supply vessel captains who were violently assaulted while working off the coast of Nigeria.

The area in which they were required to operate was known to be at high risk for boarding, attacks and kidnappings yet their employer, and the company to which they were contracted, failed to take adequate measures to ensure their security and safety. As a result of the attacks one captain suffered facial fractures requiring surgery and the other suffered arm, back and neck injuries which will likely require surgery. Both individuals now suffer from post traumatic stress disorder as a result of the incident. Arnold & Itkin was proud to assist these two seamen to ensure they received the medical treatment they required and the compensation they deserved.

$1.5 Million Obtained for Injured Longshoreman

In the incident, our client has been carrying a mooring line to tie up a barge alongside a dock when the slack in the line suddenly became taut, jerking him backward. The defendant argued that the line only became tight because another worker let it fall into the water; that our client was only injured because he had improperly tied the line around his shoulder; and that our client had pre-existing injuries. The vessel owner’s doctor even argued that our client had been faking the injury. Despite these allegations, we were successful in recovering a $1.5 million settlement on behalf of our client. The case was pending in the Eastern District of Texas. The Honorable Marcia Crone was presiding.

Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $646,494.87.

$1,500,000 Verdict Obtained for Family in Wrongful Death Case

Arnold & Itkin filed a lawsuit on behalf of a family who had lost a loved one when he collapsed from a cardiac arrhythmia at the UPS warehouse where he was working that summer. The warehouse was not air conditioned. UPS argued that its warehouses rarely are. They further argued that the young man had needed his pacemaker since infancy and was well aware of the working conditions, having worked at that warehouse for the last six years. UPS had previously offered the family a $150,000 settlement before the case went to trial in Harris County, Texas. It takes a unanimous verdict to find a defendant guilty of gross negligence, which goes beyond ordinary negligence.
