Jones Act Claim Filed for Worker Who Needed Medical Treatment
Arnold & Itkin is currently representing a Jones Act seaman suffering because of the negligence of his employer. Our client developed a serious medical condition that required immediate treatment. However, his employer failed to evacuate him from the vessel he was working on promptly. Because of this delay in treatment, our client suffered catastrophic injuries to his lower extremities. He’s had to undergo multiple surgeries and has had his ability to work impacted.
Vessel owners have a responsibility to care for those they employ to work on their ships. Our client paid the price for his employer's failure to have an adequate emergency response plan. Besides being the right thing to do, protecting the safety of offshore workers is the law.
Arnold & Itkin’s offshore injury lawyers have a history of helping injured workers obtain the compensation they deserve after suffering from the negligence of employers. We’ll fight for the justice and medical treatment that this worker deserves. Our attorneys filed this case in Harris County, Texas.
