Case Filed on Behalf of Injured Tugboat Worker
Arnold & Itkin is currently representing a man who lives in Alpha, Florida. He sustained injuries while working on a tugboat in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana. Our client slipped and fell while on the vessel, causing severe injuries to his knee. The accident occurred because his employer failed to maintain safe working conditions on the boat.
Our client’s employers had a responsibility to ensure that their vessel was safe for operation and failed to do so. For centuries, maritime law has required vessel owners to care for injured crew members and the Jones Act protects offshore workers on United States vessels. This law protects our offshore industries by preventing dangerous work conditions for the men and women who work in it.
Arnold & Itkin has extensive experience representing maritime workers suffering because of a preventable accident. We've won billions of dollars for clients by never accepting less than they deserve and our team will work to obtain the compensation that this man needs for his suffering. Our offshore injury lawyers filed this case in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana.
