Arnold & Itkin Files Jones Act Case
Arnold & Itkin, LLP offshore lawyers recently filed a Jones Act case on behalf of an Edison Chouest worker who fell several feet while his vessel was in a shipyard in Grand Isle, Louisiana. The injured seaman is from Grand Bay, Alabama. He suffered serious back injuries in the fall and his doctors have told him he will not be able to work again.
The lawsuit alleges that the defendant failed to properly supervise its employees and provide them with a safe working environment. The plaintiff is seeking compensation for medical bills and lost past and future wages.
The case was filed in Harris County, Texas.
Arnold & Itkin is looking forward to helping the injured man and his family get the compensation he deserves to help him take care of himself while he is unable to work.
