Unanimous Jury Verdict of $4.9 Million Secured

Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Jason Itkin, and another attorney from Arnold & Itkin recently filed suit against on behalf of an injured offshore worker who was employed on an oil rig owned and operated by Diamond Offshore Drilling outside of the Brazilian coast. The plaintiff was working on the rig when he was abruptly lifted over twenty feet into the air; his fail safety protection did not function properly and as a result, he suffered serious injuries to his left arm and his back.

A case was recently filed against Diamond Offshore in the 157th District Court for Harris County, TX in front of Judge Wilson. Total, the trial lasted over a week and a half; however, when it was done, the invested time as well worth it as the jury returned with a unanimous verdict of $4,900,000 for the injured plaintiff.
