Case Filed For Offshore Worker With Spinal Cord Injuries
Arnold & Itkin LLP Jones Act lawyers Kurt Arnold, Kala Sellers, and Adam Lewis recently filed suit on behalf of a Texas offshore worker who was injured on the job. While performing his duties as instructed, the client was crushed by a large metal tile. This incident caused severe injuries that needed spinal surgery and will require ongoing medical care.
Offshore work is an inherently dangerous job that combines the hazards of the industrial world with the remoteness of the sea. Employers are aware of these dangers and have a responsibility to shield workers from the harsh conditions they experience on a daily basis. Those who do not protect their workers must be held accountable.
Spinal cord injuries are serious, presenting life-altering complications for those who suffer them. Arnold & Itkin’s maritime lawyers are proud to represent people who are injured while working to provide for their family. We look forward to helping this offshore worker through this difficult time and getting him the medical care he is entitled to.
The case was filed in Harris County, Texas.
