Jones Act Claim Filed for Worker Injured by Preventable Accident
Arnold & Itkin Attorney Roland Christensen filed suit on behalf of a Jones Act seaman from Harris County, Texas. Our client was seriously injured after he slipped and fell on a slick surface while performing the duties of his job. His employer failed to provide a safe workplace, and our client is now suffering from injuries that should have never happened.
Under the Jones Act, vessel owners are required to make sure their workers have the benefit of a safe environment. When they fail to do so, the law requires them to provide the compensation that injured workers need to recover. No one deserves to face the hardships associated with medical recovery caused by a preventable accident.
Arnold & Itkin’s offshore injury lawyers have extensive experience making sure injured seamen receive the compensation that they deserve. We’ve recovered billions of dollars while holding negligent parties accountable, and we’ll refuse to settle for less than this man deserves. We filed this case in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana.
