Maritime Injury Lawyers Settle Case for $1,087,500

Arnold & Itkin LLP recently represented a Jones Act seaman who was injured while working aboard a drilling barge off the coast of Louisiana. Our client was a 27-year-old deckhand from Florida who had been hurt when the crewmembers of the barge had been performing a blind lift. Our client was struck on the head and in the face by a pipe, which knocked him unconscious and caused him to fall several feel on the barge. This left our client suffering from significant injuries to his neck and back.

The deckhand reached out to the maritime accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin through our website to learn more about his rights under the Jones Act. Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Kyle Findley took on the case and filed in Harris County. After second mediation and only two weeks before trial was set to begin, our firm was able to settle the case for $1.087 million.
