Case Filed on Behalf of Seaman Injured on Tug
The offshore injury attorneys at Arnold & Itkin LLP have recently filed suit against Savage Inland Marine LLC on behalf of a Jones Act seaman. The worker suffered personal injuries while he was fulfilling his duties as directed aboard a tug known as Savage Mentor. Here, the seaman was exposed to abundant amounts of mold, making the Savage Mentor unseaworthy. Because of his exposure to mold, the man has sustained breathing complications, diabetes, and blindness.
Offshore Injuries Are a Result of Employer Neglect
Employers have a responsibility to maintain safety on a vessel due to the inherently dangerous qualities of offshore work. When employers neglect safety, their employees are the people who must pay the harshest prices. When employees are injured while working aboard a ship, it is a direct result of the employer’s failure to provide a safe work environment.
The Jones Act attorneys at Arnold & Itkin look forward to helping our client get back on his feet.
The case was filed in Galveston County, Texas.
