Case Filed for Longshoreman Injured by Falling Cargo
Arnold & Itkin LLP recently filed a case involving a longshoreman who was struck by falling cargo and equipment at the Chalmette Midstream Buoys during a cargo unloading operation. The incident occurred when the main crane cable aboard the M/V Unison Power, a Hong Kong-flagged bulk carrier failed.
As a result of the incident, the man sustained injuries to his back, neck, groin, and other parts of his body. Our lawyers believe that the defendant was responsible for the circumstances that led to the accident. No matter whether it’s poor manufacturing or poor maintenance, supervisors are required to ensure the safety of their workers. When they fail to carry out maintenance or manufacturers fail to notice defects in their equipment, workers like our client pay the price.
Our firm is determined to get our client every penny of his medical care, future treatment, lost wages, and diminished earning capacity so he can move forward with peace. We also hope to improve the conditions of his work site—Arnold & Itkin will always fight for better safety compliance in the offshore industry, where so many people put themselves at risk to earn a living. Arnold & Itkin looks forward to seeking the justice that he deserves.
The case was filed in the Eastern District of Louisiana.
