Offshore Worker Injured Because of Company’s Unsafe Work Practices
Arnold & Itkin’s Jones Act lawyers are representing a man who is suffering because of the careless behavior of his employer. Our client sustained debilitating injuries caused by understaffing, a lack of proper equipment, and the unreasonable demands of his employer. No one should find themselves injured and unable to work because their employer neglected safety.
When employers cut corners to save money, their employees end up paying for it with their health. While offshore work is inherently dangerous, nothing excuses a company’s failure to provide basic protections to its workers. In this case, our client's employer failed to protect his safety by making unreasonable demands and failing to provide him with the basic tools needed to satisfy them. Now, he deserves compensation for this unfair situation and his entirely preventable suffering.
Arnold & Itkin is always ready to fight for workers who suffer from offshore injuries because we know that our work can change lives. We’ll focus on obtaining the compensation that this man needs for medical care, lost wages, and his diminished ability to earn a living as he once did.
