Representing a Lead Deckman in Dock Collapse Accident

The tugboat accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin filed a lawsuit against Ascend Performance and IntraTug as a result of serious back injuries sustained to their client. While working as a lead deckman for IntraTug, he was instructed to perform unsafe work by his captain. While performing this work, he had to use a dock that was owned and maintained by Ascend Performance. Upon stepping on the dock, it immediately collapsed, and the plaintiff fell into the water below the vessel. As a result, he suffered significant back injuries that have required ongoing medical treatment.

Back injuries pose a serious threat to our mobility and general health. For people who make a living doing labor that requires movement, standing, or any sort of physical work, a serious back injury can mean the end of a career. Injuries like our client’s often rob entire families of their future and their financial stability. Arnold & Itkin is proud to fight for our client to get him the justice that he deserves and to help him to receive the medical care he absolutely needs.

This suit was filed against Ascend Performance and IntraTug in Harris County, Texas.
