or had primary responsibility for the verdict or settlement. The client's
portion of the total recovery may have been subject to medical liens and
other third-party claims. These past results are not a guarantee or prediction

$5.5 Million Settlement Secured for Injured Workers
Jason Itkin, Noah Wexler, and Cory Itkin are proud to announce that they
won a $5.5 million settlement for four injured workers. The case presented
many difficult legal and factual hurdles. However, Arnold & Itkin’s
creative approach to framing the case’s liability theory allowed
their clients to overcome several motions by the defense to have the case
thrown out of court. The target defendant, one of the largest companies
in the U.S.A., agreed to the settlement during jury selection. Arnold
& Itkin is honored to have won the settlement on behalf of our clients,
which will ensure that the workers are taken care of for the rest of their
lives. Arnold & Itkin is also proud that the lawsuit led to safety
changes that will ensure that an accident of this type does not happen again.

$3.5 Million Settlement for Victims of Nigerian Pirates
Kurt Arnold and Noah Wexler recently secured a $3.5 million settlement
on behalf of two clients who had been working as supply vessel captains
near the coast of Nigeria – an area known for the high risk of boarding,
attacks and kidnapping. Both of them had been victimized by inadequate
security, engine malfunctions and other negligence that had left their
vessel vulnerable to boarding and attack. In the attack by armed assailants,
one of the victims sustained arm, back and neck injuries and the other
sustained facial fractures; both of them developed by post-traumatic stress
disorder (PTSD). The firm was proud to help these clients maximize their
recovery and seek their just outcome.
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $1,529,735.70.

Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $1,300,676.74.
$3.9 Million Settlement Reached for Injured Land Rig Worker
Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Noah Wexler settled a case on behalf of an injured
Louisiana rig worker in central Louisiana. The client suffered significant
injuries to his neck and shoulders as a result of the defendants’
failure to ensure the scene was clear before bleeding off pressure through
the rig hoses. Defendants denied liability and maintained it was the plaintiff's
fault. Kurt and Noah took approximately 10 depositions and pushed the
case to trial. The defendants raised their offer and settled right before
a jury was picked.
$1.975 Million Recovered for Victims of Truck Accident
Attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin, Noah Wexler, and Kelly Woods are pleased
to announce a settlement of $1.975M for two of our clients who were injured
in Houston by an 18-wheeler. The 18-wheeler struck our clients' vehicle
while trying to make a lane change. The company tried to blame our clients
for being in the 18-wheeler’s blind spot. One client hurt her neck
and the other client needed a back surgery. The settlement makes sure
the clients’ needs will be taken care of in the future.
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $841,954.44.
$1.9 Million Won on Behalf of Injured Plant Worker
Our client suffered a head and neck injury when a dilapidated piece of
equipment fell on him during a turn-around operation at a chemical plant.
Though the plant initially tried to blame our client for the incident,
Attorneys Caj Boatright, Cory Itkin, and Noah Wexler aggressively pushed
the case toward trial and proved that the old equipment should have been
removed years before. Rather than face trial, the plant agreed to settle
the case for $1,900,000. We are proud to have helped ensure the financial
security of our client and his family for years to come.
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $818,670.83.
$1.5 Million Recovered for Injured Longshoreman
Attorneys Cory Itkin, Jason Itkin, and Kelly Woods obtained a $1,500,000
settlement on behalf of an injured longshoreman who injured his lower
back in a line handling incident. Their client eventually needed multiple
back surgeries to treat his injuries. The injured worker was carrying
a mooring line along a dock to tie up a barge. The slack on the mooring
line suddenly became tight and jerked the worker backward. The defendant
argued that the line became tight because a worker for another company
let the line fall into the water. They also argued that the plaintiff
would not have been injured except for the fact that he improperly tied
the line around his shoulder. Moreover, they pointed to a long history
of back injuries to argue that all of his injuries were pre-existing.
The vessel owner’s doctor even argued that the plaintiff was faking
his injuries. Cory and Jason were able to beat back these charges and
win a favorable settlement on behalf of their client. The case was pending
in the Eastern District of Texas with the Honorable Marcia Crone presiding.
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $646,494.87.
$1.25 Million Recovered for Freeway Accident Injuries
Attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin, Noah Wexler, and Kelly Woods resolved
a case with a $1.25 million settlement for a young man who was severely
injured on his way to work. Our client was driving onto the feeder into
the Sam Houston Tollway when he was struck by a piece of freeway construction
equipment. The collision resulted in severe injuries to his head, back,
arms, and legs, requiring both emergency care and ongoing medical treatment.
The Defendant disputed their own responsibility for the accident as well
as the severity of our client’s injuries. Our lawyers fought relentlessly
for our client by countering the Defendant’s assertions, eventually
compelling them to provide a sizable settlement to take care of our client’s
medical costs, lost wages, and financial security. We are proud to have
helped this young man hold negligent individuals accountable for their
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $594,508.54.
$1 Million Settlement Won for Injured Inland Barge Worker
Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin, and Noah Wexler recently obtained a $1,000,000
settlement on behalf of an inland barge worker who injured his back and
knee when he fell. He eventually needed surgery to treat both injuries.
The defendants in the case claimed the injured worker was to blame for
not paying attention to his surroundings. They also argued that all the
injuries were pre-existing. The defendants were even able to obtain a
summary judgment in the case. Arnold & Itkin LLP’s lawyers were
able to overcome these obstacles and win a fair settlement for their client
that will help him move on with his life. The case was pending in Harris
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $571,450.17.
$950,000 Settlement Recovered for Woman in 18-Wheeler Accident
Attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin, and Noah Wexler recently secured a $950,000
settlement on behalf of a woman who was seriously injured when her vehicle
was struck by an 18-wheeler. The woman was a Houston resident and veteran.
Arnold & Itkin's client eventually needed back surgery to treat
her injuries. The Defendant in the case argued that her injuries were
less serious than claimed and that they pre-existed the date of the accident.
Prior to settlement, the case was pending before the Honorable Wesley
Ward in Harris County, Texas. Arnold & Itkin was proud to represent
this client and help seek the compensation she deserved.
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $443,931.98.
$875,000 Secured for Man Electrocuted in Workplace Accident
Attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin, and Noah Wexler recovered $875,000 for
our client, who was electrocuted while working from a height. The electrocution
caused him to fall three stories, causing severe injuries to his neck,
shoulders, back, and hips. The incident required emergency care and eventually
caused our client to undergo multiple surgeries. The defendant did not
believe themselves to be responsible, blaming our client for his own injuries.
They even disputed the nature and extent of our client’s injuries,
despite a major electrical accident and 3-story fall. Our attorneys fought
each of these assertions with hard evidence, compelling the defendant
to negotiate a settlement that would cover our client’s past and
present medical costs. Our firm is proud to have represented this man,
who was severely injured due to the negligence of others and needed both
justice and financial compensation.
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $375,919.59.
$675,000 Obtained for Injured Deckhand
Attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin, Noah Wexler, and Ryan MacLeod recently
resolved a case for $675,000.00 which involved a serious injury to a deckhand
who was directed to check a hatch. When the hatch was opened it was under
pressure and threw him back and to the deck. He sustained injuries to
his back and neck requiring extensive medical treatment. Defendants contested
liability and blamed the man for opening the wrong hatch. Arnold Itkin
LLP and its attorneys were able to overcome these defenses and negotiate
a settlement on his behalf. The case was pending in Harris County District
Court. Arnold Itkin LLP is proud to represent individuals like this, who
have sustained serious and permanent injuries while working offshore.
