Attorneys at Arnold & Itkin File Suit on Behalf of Injured Seaman
Attorney Kurt Arnold and two other attorneys from Arnold & Itkin filed suit on behalf of a seaman who was injured while working on a vessel docked in Port Fourchon, Louisiana on October of 2011. The offshore worker lost his left hand after his hand made contact with a large and dangerous blade that was unprotected inside the vessel's stack gas room. The case was filed against Edison Chouest Offshore, Inc. and Galliano Marine Services, LLC, the owner and operator of the vessel and the entity responsible for maintenance and cure, respectively. The case is pending in Duval County District Court.
