Case Filed for Tankerman Injured in Vessel Collision
Arnold & Itkin recently filed a case on behalf of a man who suffered severe injuries while working on a boat. His injuries were caused by a collision with another vessel on March 8, 2019. Our client, a tankerman and former naval officer, sustained injuries to his head, neck, shoulder and other parts of his body when the collision occurred.
Head, neck, and shoulder injuries are frequently serious—they can cause lasting pain and inhibit a person’s ability to work for the rest of their life. These injuries require extensive medical treatment for an accident survivor’s full recovery. Our client’s employer failed to provide him with a safe work environment as required by the Jones Act and other laws addressing worker safety. Arnold & Itkin’s offshore injury attorneys will fight for the justice that this young man deserves, just as we’ve fought for the recovery of other workers after they've suffered from an accident caused by negligence.
Our attorneys filed the case in Harris County, Texas.
