Case Filed for Seaman Injured While Loading Vessel
Arnold & Itkin Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, Kala Sellers, and Adam Lewis are currently representing a Jones Act seaman. He sustained serious injuries while loading a vessel at a shipyard. Our client’s injuries occurred because his employer required him to lift heavy material across an unsafe grating. This hazardous situation caused the seaman to injure his neck, back, and legs, requiring him to spend weeks in the hospital.
Vessel owners must protect the wellbeing of their crew. This obligation to safety exists even while the vessel is at a shipyard. Because of the negligence of our client’s employer, he’s had to suffer medically and financially. This is unacceptable.
At Arnold & Itkin, our team of Jones Act lawyers is always ready to stand up for maritime workers suffering because of negligence. Our dedication to results has recovered billions of dollars for clients, and we look forward to fighting for this man. Our team filed this case in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.
