Arnold & Itkin File Suit for Injured Offshore Worker
Recently, attorneys at Arnold & Itkin LLP chose to file suit for an offshore worker who was injured while on the job. The worker was doing his daily duties when a faulty winch unwound. The worker was in a basket in the process of a transfer, but the unwound winch caused the individual to fall. When he fell to the ground in the basket, it suffered serious injuries.
The accident could have been avoided, and investigations prove that the crane operator was negligent when operating the crane during transfer. Had he inspected the winch or operated the machinery with more caution, the victim could have been spared extreme suffering and injury.
