Lawsuit Filed for Louisiana Seaman with Injured Back
Arnold & Itkin filed suit in East Baton Rouge on behalf of a seaman who sustained severe back injuries. This man was forced to work on a tugboat rife with unavoidable slip hazards, and was severely injured as a result.
Part of any vessel owner or manager’s job is to ensure the safety of the crew. Under maritime law, a seaman’s safety is paramount to the continued operation of the ship. Being a crew member or working on the open ocean is dangerous enough without negligent management making it worse. As maritime lawyers, we make it our duty to ensure the safety of seamen when employers endanger their lives.
We look forward to getting this man the justice he deserves.
