Case Filed on Behalf of an Injured Jones Act Seaman
Arnold & Itkin Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, Kala Sellers, and Adam Lewis filed suit on November 8, 2019 in Harris County, Texas for a Jones Act seaman who was severely injured when he was operating a vessel on inland waters in Tennessee. He was injured when the river overcame the vessel, causing it to crash into a bank. As a result, our client suffered severe injuries to his back, neck and other parts of his body, which will require extensive medical treatment, including surgery.
Our client was inexperienced and had requested help and training prior to the accident but his employer failed to provide either. Instead, they required him to work in dangerous conditions, which ultimately caused him to suffer serious injuries. This employer should be held liable for failing to provide our client with the proper training, and for the injuries our client suffered. The Jones Act attorneys at Arnold & Itkin look forward to representing this client and helping him obtain the compensation he deserves for the injuries he suffered.
