Worker Injured During Tow on Mississippi River
Arnold & Itkin is currently working to help a deckhand injured while working on a towboat on the Mississippi River. Our client collapsed when he was told to lift two heavy spools of wire without proper assistance. His employer thought our client’s incident and suffering was funny, but he now has two herniated discs.
This man relied on his body to take care of himself and his family, but now his body is broken and his ability to work in the future is uncertain. Employers are required to make sure their workers are protected so life-changing injuries such as the ones our client has don’t happen. Now, this worker deserves compensation for his lost wages, medical care, and other hardships caused by this situation.
Our offshore injury lawyers are always ready to fight for people who are suffering from preventable accidents. We’ll work to hold this employer responsible for the damage they’ve caused, no matter what.
Our team filed this case in Paducah, Kentucky.
