Arnold & Itkin Secures $117M Verdict for Accident Victim

The victim of an ambulance accident was able to receive $117 million in a verdict after the firm proved negligence on behalf of the driver.

The firm is proud to announce the recent successful verdict that they won on behalf of their client, the victim of an ambulance accident. The plaintiff was seven months pregnant at the time of the accident (December 2010) when she was experiencing stomach pains and called for an ambulance. Acadian Ambulance picked her up a short time later to transport her to the hospital. What the woman didn't know and what Arnold & Itkin later proved was that the driver had a poor driving history and bad vision as well. While the ambulance was en route to the hospital, the driver dropped something on the floor and proceeded to pick it up. He took his eyes completely off of the road and did not slow down. As a result, the ambulance collided with the back of a sugar cane truck. The woman suffered a severed spine and serious brain injuries as a result.

She will never be able to walk again, and is permanently confined to the wheelchair. Also incredibly unfortunate is that her baby was born prematurely. Our client's baby and her other daughter were forced to live with the client's mother because she could no longer care for them with her disability. At the time the verdict was reached, the woman had already had to spend $1.4 million in medical bills. Throughout the course of the rest of her life, her medical bills are estimated to reach $30 million. The $117 million verdict is going toward the medical bills for the mother as well as all possible medical treatments needed for the premature child, as health complications may arise. Part of the verdict was also because the plaintiff's two children will not be able to have a healthy mother who can take care of them, and the pain and suffering that the mother sustained in addition to her physical wounds.

$76.6 Million

$76.6 Million Verdict Secured in Risperdal Case Against Johnson & Johnson

The team at Arnold & Itkin was successful in obtaining a massive $76.6 million verdict for a boy who suffered gynecomastia due to Risperdal, a Johnson & Johnson drug.

Attorney Jason Itkin and the team of lawyers from Arnold & Itkin won an impressive $76.6 million jury verdict on behalf of a boy who suffered gynecomastia, or irregular female breast growth. The verdict came against Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceutical for their drug, Risperdal. The team was also assisted by Cory Itkin and Santana McMurrey from the firm. Both Jason and Kyle provided representation for the boy’s family, bringing a lawsuit against J&J for failing to provide a proper warning that their antipsychotic medicine, Risperdal, could lead to the development of female breasts. This verdict will help ensure that J&J is held accountable for causing such devastating disfigurement to Arnold & Itkin’s client.

J&J and Janssen Pharmaceuticals tried to argue that because their drug was the only drug that worked for the boy, he continued to stay on the drug—even though he was informed of the potential risks. They also tried to argue that Risperdal does not even cause gynecomastia, despite significant evidence that shows otherwise. Our team discovered pivotal evidence through careful cross-examination that was known in the case as “Tab 4.” It became crucial to our case and had never become public until the trial. This included scientific data that showed a clear link between Risperdal and the condition known as gynecomastia. Even though they had this information, J&J knowingly kept this evidence secret, hiding it from the FDA and burying it from scientific studies.

The Philadelphia jury found that Johnson & Johnson was guilty of falsifying, concealing, and/or destroying evidence. After just 11 days of trial, they unanimously agreed that J&J failed to warn of the side effects of Risperdal, thus causing our client to develop gynecomastia. They awarded our client $76.6 million—the largest single verdict in such a case.

The companies responsible chose to settle with our client a week before trial was set to begin—giving him the financial security and access to medical care he needs. The settlement is potentially a record-setting size, which has compelled the companies involved to change their policies and ensure this never happens to another worker.

$44 Million Jury Award for Crane Accident Victim

Arnold & Itkin LLP helped represent a man who had been severely injured in a crane accident, which caused his leg to be amputated. Lead Attorney Kurt Arnold helped to win $44 million on his behalf (which is the largest amputee verdict in the country).

As lead attorney, Kurt Arnold helped represent a construction superintendent whose leg was amputated in an above-the-knee procedure following severe crush injuries sustained in a crane accident. Our client was a 31-year-old man who had been working on a construction job in Houston, TX at the time of the incident. A crane operator had been working to unstick the auger when the crane collapsed. Prior to the collapse, the crane operator had attempted to stop the job at least five separate times; however, the superintendent had refused.

Our client had been standing behind a safety fence approximately 100 feet from the auger when he was struck by a piece of equipment that pinned him to the ground. After a crane lifted the equipment off of our client, he was taken to a local hospital where the amputation was performed. Over a three week trial, Kurt showed that several safety practices had been violated in an attempt to save both money and time on the project. In the end, the jury awarded $44 million to the client and his family, which included $8.5 million in punitive damages.

This case was listed #43 in The National Law Journal's Top 100 Verdicts of 2015.

$39.7 Million

$39.7 Million Recovered for Burn Injury Victim

Attorneys Kyle Findley, Kala Sellers, and Adam Lewis won a record $39.744 million verdict on behalf of a Texas worker who was severely burned after a dust fire and explosion occurred at his place of work.

In 2004, Georgia-Pacific hired Aircon, Inc. to design and install a dust collection system to protect their Corrigan, TX plant from disaster. The system worked by taking highly-combustible dust from an industrial sander and carrying it to a baghouse where filter bags cleaned it from the air. This worked in conjunction with a spark detection and suppression system to protect the baghouse; this was designed and supplied by GreCon, Inc.

10 years later, on April 26, 2014, these systems utterly failed. Sparks went through the ductwork and entered the baghouse, causing an explosion and deflagration. Unknowingly, our client had been standing within range of the disaster and was engulfed by the fire. He suffered catastrophic, life-threatening burns as a result. However, despite this, our client worked to alert emergency services and even refused to leave for medical treatment until he had confirmed that his co-workers were being transported for medical care.

When he finally did leave, he was taken by life flight helicopter to a Tier 1 burn unit where his lengthy healing process began. By the time his trial had started, he had already undergone seven surgical procedures and was projected to receive multiple more in the future. Attorneys Kyle Findley, Kala Sellers, and Adam Lewis took on the case and fought tirelessly for him. During the three week trial, they argued that the systems were unsafe and failed to meet industry standards. The jury deliberated and found both defendants negligent.

In the end, they awarded a record $39.744 million verdict for our client.

Eventually, the defendant was forced to settle with our client rather than face his claim before a jury. We’re proud to say that our client will have everything he needs medically and financially for the rest of his life.

$18.5 Million Verdict Secured for Plaintiffs in Second Williams Trial

Arnold & Itkin had secured a large verdict for 4 of the injured workers in the Geismar explosion of 2013.

Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and Kala Sellers stood up against corporate giants Williams Companies, Inc. and Sabic Petrochemicals to obtain an $18.5 million jury verdict for injuries wrongfully sustained in our clients. Though our firm thoroughly intends to bring Williams Companies, Inc. to further justice in future trials, juries have awarded our clients a combined $30 million from just two trials so far. This case was the first to hold Sabic Petrochemical financially responsible for the incident – the plant owners possessed a 16% stake at the time of the explosion. As our team pursues further trials against the parties responsible for this incident, we do so with our clients in mind, hopeful and honored to bring hard-working victims the justice they deserve.

Arnold & Itkin Wins $15.4 Million Jury Verdict for 4 Workers Injured in 2013 Geismar Explosion

Our firm fought for workers who were injured in the plant explosion, securing them a massive verdict and overcoming the normal limits set by workers’ compensation.

Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and Kala Sellers have won a verdict of $15,458,434.32 for our clients, who were injured and traumatized by the Williams Olefins plant explosion in 2013. The blast occurred during a $400 million expansion project, which was initiated while operations continued at the plant. The CEO and the board of directors were warned that continuing operations would put workers at increased risk, but they overruled the safety warnings and ordered that the plant continue operating instead of shutting down for a few months for the expansion project.

As a result, a reboiler over-pressurized from the lack of a functioning valve, causing an explosion that could be seen for miles. Our clients were all injured in the blast and were forced to flee the site immediately. The event left them with both physical and psychological injuries, and they needed compensation to help heal.

The plant’s owners’ parent company, Williams Companies, Inc., attempted to limit their compensation by placing the blame on Williams Olefins LLC—the holding company for the plant. With a vast amount of experience with plant operations, Arnold & Itkin attorneys set out to find the truth. After receiving over 100,000 documents, we found that the pressure relief valve for the reboiler was not opened.

More importantly, we found that the isolated reboiler was the subject of multiple audits and safety warnings—all of which were ignored, as the necessary repair was never provided. We discovered evidence that the Defendants had “substantial certainty” that an explosion would occur under those circumstances. As a result, our clients could seek compensation beyond the limits set by workers’ compensation. The most vital evidence we found, however, was proof that Williams Companies, Inc. were the true employers of plant managers and personnel, and were in control of daily operations at the site.

During trial, the Defendants insisted that they were protected by the statutory employer defense. They continued to exclusively blame Williams Olefins LLC, which would limit their responsibility for the explosion. However, after 3 weeks the jury saw the truth—they awarded a judgment in favor of the Plaintiffs, and found that the plant managers were actually employees of Williams Companies, Inc.

As a result, the jury assigned 95% responsibility to Williams Companies, Inc. and 3% to Williams Olefins LLC. Both were found to have substantial certainty about the inevitability of an explosion, and so a sizable award was able to be given to our clients.

The jury awarded our clients the following: $9.4 million, $3.6 million, $360,000, and $205,000. The award was made of the original judgment ($13,679,933.) as well as pre-judgment interest ($1,778,409.79). All told, our clients were awarded over $15.4 million for their injuries and pain.

Arnold & Itkin was proud to help our clients get the help and justice they needed. We are also honored to be representing over 100 more workers in upcoming trials with Clayton, Fruge, and Ward—fighting to get every injured worker the compensation due to them. This case was presided over by the Honorable Elizabeth Engolio and was filed in Iberville Parish, Louisiana.

$9.55M Recovered for Injured Longshoreman

A $9,550,000 settlement was secured by Arnold & Itkin attorneys on behalf of a Louisiana longshoreman. The team was able to confirm that the man was blameless for the accident that took his leg.

Attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin, and Bradford Hendrickson secured a $9.55 million settlement for a longshoreman from Virginia. While performing his work duties, the longshoreman became the victim of an industrial crane accident. This accident caused the client various injuries resulting in the amputation of one of his legs. Proving accountability in Virginia is critical to an injury case, as Virginia law states that if a client is partially responsible for an injury, he or she forfeits their right to compensation. The defendant argued that the client was at fault for the incident, but Arnold & Itkin lawyers proved that this was not true. As a result, the longshoreman received a fair settlement. The settlement included the $9.55 million payment, an admittance of guilt by the defendant given to the client, a payment of $500,000 for the client’s medical bills, and the creation of a memorial safety award to honor the client’s service and diligence while employed as a longshoreman. Arnold & Itkin is truly honored to have obtained this recovery for their client.

$2.9 Million Verdict Awarded to Hurt Offshore Crane Mechanic

After 7 days of trial and 1 hour of deliberation, a Harris County jury found the defendant to be 100% at fault for the incident and awarded $2.9 million to an injured crane mechanic represented by Arnold & Itkin.

In Harris County, TX, Attorneys Kyle Findley and Ces Tavares fought to help an injured offshore crane mechanic recover from career-ending injuries. Our client had been contracted as a crane mechanic in the Gulf of Mexico West Cameron field for W&T Offshore, Inc. at the time of the incident. He had been changing the main block on the crane when a cable snapped—sending a 67-pound anti two block weight falling 60 feet onto his left foot, causing several fractures that required him to be sent by helicopter to shore for medical treatment.

Despite the severity of the injuries, W&T argued that they were not at fault for the injury at all; instead, they claimed that the blame rested entirely with the plaintiff as he was the only one who knew about the cable and therefore the only person who would have been able to prevent the incident. W&T, along with its insurers, withdrew all settlement offers months before the beginning of the trial and refused to negotiate a settlement.

We took the cause to trial in Harris County, which lasted seven days. The jury then deliberated for one hour before they found W&T to be 100% at fault for the incident and awarded every dollar of damages that Kyle requested on behalf of the client. In the end, the awarded $2,809,899 in damages with $144,248.61 in pre-judgment interest, bringing the total recovery to $2,954,147.33 for the injured crane mechanic.

BP Worker Injured in Crane Accident Receives a $1.72 Million Jury Verdict

Cory Itkin represented a BP worker who sustained serious injuries in a crane accident, obtaining a $1.72 million jury verdict on his behalf.

Arnold & Itkin LLP secured a $1.72 million jury verdict on behalf of a client who was seriously injured in a crane accident at the BP refinery in Texas City, Texas. Attorney Cory Itkin represented Ernesto Tamez, who was injured in the accident on January 18, 2005.

A negligent Maxim Crane Works crane operator swung a heavy oil burner into Mr. Tamez, causing serious injuries to his neck, back and shoulder when he was pinned between the burner and a nearby handrail. Maxim Crane Works initially made no settlement offer prior to the trial, arguing that the accident was Mr. Tamez's fault. The company claimed that 60-year-old Tamez could have sustained some of the injuries as a result of "wear and tear". An issue that added complexity to the case was that Mr. Tamez and his wife do not speak English and therefore had to testify with the help of a translator.

The jury ruled in favor of Mr. Tamez after the week-long trial. They found that Maxim Crane Works was 100% at fault for the accident and awarded Mr. Tamez and his wife $1.72 million. Through the four years that this case lasted, Arnold & Itkin LLP stood by Mr. Tamez and helped him get the medical attention and financial compensation he needed. The case was pending in Galveston County, Texas. The Honorable Judge David E. Garner presided.

$1.7M Jury Verdict Won for Victim of Helicopter Crash

Attorneys Cory Itkin & Caj Boatright represented a client who had been involved in a serious helicopter accident while being transported to an offshore platform. They recovered a $1.7M judgment.

Arnold & Itkin Attorneys Cory Itkin and Caj Boatright represented a victim of a serious helicopter accident. Their client was an offshore fire and safety inspector who was being transported to an offshore platform at the time of the incident. The PHI helicopter experienced a tail rotor failure—causing the pilot to land in the Gulf of Mexico. The helicopter then flipped over in the water after it landed as the flotation devices had not been properly installed. Our client subsequently suffered from PTSD, as well as a severe back injury that eventually required surgery.

PHI argued they had done nothing wrong and that the entire incident could be blamed on the manufacturers of the tail rotor. They went on to claim that our client had not even been injured in the accident; they argued that the two other people who were involved in the crash were not injured and that our client had previously suffered from back problems and depression. PHI claimed that our client had been on pain medication for his back for years and that MRIs from a year prior to the accident were identical to those taken after the fact.

Despite the fact that PHI argued our client was faking his injuries, we stood by our client to successfully beat back the charges. We showed to the jury that our client was entitled to fair monetary compensation for the trauma that he had been put through. Not only were we able to obtain a $1.7M judgment in a jury trial, but we were also able to obtain a settlement with another party before the trial. The jury found that PHI was 100% to blame for the accident and they were therefore not entitled to receive any settlement credit.

$1,581,137 Secured on Behalf of 3 Injured Workers

After negligent actions led to an explosion, three injured workers were justly compensated for their injuries through representation from Arnold & Itkin, LLP.

Three workers involved in an explosion enlisted the help of Attorneys Kyle Findley and Ces Tavares in securing compensation for injuries caused by negligence. Our team was able to secure an impressive $1,581,137.02 verdict on behalf of these workers – several times the top amount ever offered by Nabors Drilling USA, L.P. and EOG Resources, Inc., the defendants of the case. Before returning this verdict, the jury deliberated for two days after a seven day trial period.

Leading up to the accident, the Plaintiffs were contracted to provide vacuum truck services at an EOG well in the Eagle Ford shale. During drilling operations, EOG, Nabors, and Tim Smiley, the EOG company man, removed a blow out preventer during a critical moment in operations. The well immediately began flowing to the surface; however, no evacuation order was issued. Only when gas began to flow to the surface that someone yelled for everyone to run. The explosion followed soon after, which caused several workers to fall and injure themselves while escaping.

The three Plaintiffs, Johnathan West, Monroe Johnson and Jeffrey Parchman required treatment from orthopedic doctors due to their injuries. The Defendants argued that these injuries were not as severe as claimed and that they were not at fault for the explosion. The jury found the Defendants responsible anyways and awarded compensation to the Plaintiffs. Arnold & Itkin, LLP is proud to have been able to help these men fight for what was owed them. This case was filed in Harris County, Texas with Honorable Mike Engelhart presiding as judge.

Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Kyle Findley recovered $1,400,000 on behalf of an injured Texas worker. The plaintiff was working on a blowout preventer at an elevated height at a large facility in Louisiana.

As a result, the plaintiff suffered severe injuries to his head and back. Unfortunately, he had to undergo treatment with orthopedic doctors and ultimately a back surgery. The attorneys filed suit in Harris County, alleging that the companies failed to properly inspect and maintain the scaffold. The defendants tried to place blame on the plaintiff for not wearing a safety harness at the time of the incident. During discovery, Arnold & Itkin was able to develop evidence showing, that during the scaffold inspection, the defendant failed to recognize that the railing was not secured with pins.

This caused the seaman to fall overboard. He injured his back in the incident and eventually needed surgery to treat his injuries.

The defendant also implied that the unwitnessed incident never occurred and that the injured deckhand simply made up the incident. Last, they argued that the worker was not really injured from the alleged incident. His employer pointed to a history of previous back injuries and noted that the plaintiff went to work for another company after the incident and passed an extensive pre-employment physical to obtain that job. The defendant’s highest offer of settlement before trial was only $200,000. After Cory and Caj obtained a favorable testimony at the start of the trial, the defendant increased its settlement offer to an amount that ensured the injured worker and his family would be taken care of while they move on to the next phase of their life.

Jury Awards $830,071 to Injured Crab Fisherman

Cory Itkin won a jury verdict on behalf of an injured fisherman who was t-boned in a canal intersection. Our firm was proud to secure $830,071 on his behalf.

Arnold & Itkin is proud to announce a successful jury verdict against BOPCO, LP in a Louisiana maritime case. Our client was a crab fisherman from Des Allemands. The accident occurred in the intersection of two canals and involved a BOPCO vessel operator. The fisherman was t-boned by the crew boat, suffering serious back injuries for which he eventually required surgery.

Prior to the trial, BOPCO, LP offered no settlement, eventually changing their stance and offering $190,000 while the jury was deliberating. They based their argument on the idea that our client was at fault for driving too fast, failing to maintain a proper look out, and driving on the wrong side of the canal. They also argued that he didn't really need back surgery, as his injuries weren't that severe. On top of this, they tried to argue that his lost wages were minimal, since he didn't report significant earnings to the government and that his medical bills were exaggerated. In their final attempt to protect themselves, they tried to take advantage of the Limitation of Liability Act in order to cap any damages at $45,000.

Arnold & Itkin Attorney Cory Itkin was able to successfully argue against all of these attacks, securing the results our client deserved. The jury awarded $1,106,762 to our client for total damages. This amount was reduced by 25% to account for contributory negligence. The total judgment was for $830,071, far more than the initial settlement that BOPCO, LP tried to offer our injured client.

At the hearing on the motion to compel arbitration, the attorneys put on several live witnesses, and the judge denied the defendant’s motion to compel arbitration. While the defendants appealed the decision, Arnold & Itkin was able to develop evidence that there should have been a guard over the machinery which led to the injury. After mediation, the defendants paid for all of the plaintiff’s outstanding medical bills and settled the pending lawsuit for $285,000. The case was pending in Dallas County.
