Case Filed on Behalf of a Longshoreman Injured on a Foreign Vessel
Arnold & Itkin filed suit in Harris County on behalf of a longshoreman who was seriously injured on a foreign vessel unloading cargo. The vessel owner and our client's immediate supervisor failed in fulfilling their basic duties to provide our client with a safe workplace. As a result, our client is now suffering from lifelong injuries that will require extensive medical bills and may prevent him from working in the future.
Vessel owners have the duty to protect their workers and ensure that they have the training and equipment needed to accomplish their jobs safely. This vessel owner failed to provide our client with a safe work environment, and for that reason, the vessel owner should be held liable for their negligent behavior. The offshore injury attorneys at Arnold & Itkin are proud to represent this man in seeking the justice he deserves.
