Diving Vessel Worker Injured by Falling Equipment

Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and Adam Lewis filed a lawsuit today on behalf of a man who sustained serious injuries when heavy equipment fell on his leg as he was working aboard the DSV Kelly Ann Candies, a commercial diving vessel. The equipment knocked the man over and pinned him knees-down to the deck of the ship.

Injuries like our client’s hinder the ability to earn a living, enjoy our lives, or experience painless mobility. Injuries like his are also the result of negligence. It’s an offshore employer’s duty to ensure the safety of the crew, and that includes properly securing equipment to prevent accidents like this one. Arnold & Itkin is proud to represent people harmed by the reckless and negligent actions of others, and we look forward to holding the at-fault entities responsible in this case to help our client recover.

The case was filed in East Baton Rough Parish.
