$1.5 Million Recovered for Jones Act Seaman Estate

Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Kyle Findley successfully settled a case on behalf of our clients for $1.5 million. Our firm was representing a California seaman who had been employed aboard an offshore vessel in the Gulf of Mexico; after an electrical explosion, our client sustained serious burns to his arm, neck, and face. Six months into litigation, the seaman passed away due to pulmonary embolism. His estate and his minor son were substituted in as plaintiffs for the lawsuit. Our firm continued to work hard to prove causation relating to the injuries that ultimately led to his death. One month before trial, the case was settled in mediation.
