Case Filed on Behalf of Young Seaman
Arnold & Itkin filed suit in St. Louis on behalf of a young seaman who suffered shoulder and neck injuries while working in Mississippi. His captain ordered him to perform lifting work that was patently unsafe, and our client’s future suffers as a result of injuries suffered during these activities.
After the accident, the company terminated him and refused to comply with their maintenance and cure obligations. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure their workplace is as safe as possible to prevent an accident from occurring. If employers fail to keep employees safe, it is their responsibility to compensate them for their injuries. The maritime accident attorneys at Arnold & Itkin look forward to holding this company accountable for its treatment of our client.
