Case Filed for Roustabout Maritime Worker
Arnold & Itkin’s offshore lawyers filed a Jones Act lawsuit on behalf of a roustabout who was injured on a Diamond Offshore drillship. The vessel was working in the Gulf of Mexico when the seaman injured his back helping load groceries on the vessel. The injured maritime worker resides in Florien, Louisiana. Arnold & Itkin filed the lawsuit in Harris County, Texas. Our attorneys are looking forward to helping another offshore worker get the compensation he deserves for his injuries.
