Case Filed for Injured Commercial Fisherman

Arnold and Itkin filed a lawsuit for an injured commercial fisherman. Our client was hurt when his captain failed to manage the vessel ropes at a critical moment, resulting in our client's injuries. He is a healthy, hardworking man, but this accident has left him suffering from daily spasms, chronic pain, and an unsure future. If his captain and the vessel owner wanted to do the right thing, they would cover our client's medical costs and lost wages for the rest of his life. 

Captains and vessel owners have always been responsible for the safety of their crew. Commercial fishing and voyaging has been around for thousands of years, and the one constant in that time has been the captain's obligation to his or her crew. Because our client's captain failed to keep him safe, he should be held responsible for the damages our client now faces.

Our commercial fishing accident lawyers filed this case in East Baton Rouge Parish.
