Arnold & Itkin Steps in to Help an Injured Seaman from Portland, Texas
The seasoned maritime lawyers at Arnold & Itkin have filed a Jones Act case on behalf of a seaman from Portland, Texas. The seaman was working for a Louisiana supply boat company when he injured his back moving heavy equipment. When the man reported his injuries to his employer, he was subsequently fired. Not only do employers owe injured workers certain support, but they are often barred from firing them for simply being injured. This instantly sparked the attention of our firm when the injured seaman brought his case to our firm. Arnold & Itkin quickly took legal action on his behalf, filing a suit on to pursue fair compensation for his injuries and suffering. Our firm is proud to provide counsel and support for another offshore worker following such a challenging situation.
