In late 2015, the unthinkable happened when the SS El Faro sank. The cargo ship had left port in Florida, despite knowing the strength of a brewing storm, and sailed into what became a Category Three hurricane.
The 33 crewmembers were never heard from or seen again.
When tragedy like this strikes, Arnold & Itkin steps in. We know there is no amount of money that can change what happened and no amount of money that will bring loved ones back. However, we also know the families deserve to know the truth. They deserve to have their voices be heard. Attorney Kurt Arnold and our legal team represented several families who lost their husbands, fathers, and sons in the sinking of the El Faro. We were honored to have helped them through this trying time, and we are proud of the results we achieved on their behalf.
“I made up my mind. This is the kind of lawyers I need. The kind of lawyers who will fight for my rights—not only my rights, but my husband's. I didn't want his life to be wasted. I didn't want his life to be of no meaning at all.”
“My husband was amazing. He did 10 years in the Navy prior to becoming a merchant seaman. He was a provider. He was just a really outgoing, hard working person who took care of his family. There was a lot that changed in my life because he wasn’t there anymore.”
“I was so distraught for months that I don’t even know what happened. I just knew that we were reporting to the Seamen's Hall to get answers, and we were getting very few answers. I knew that I needed help.”
One of the best things about serving our clients like we do is that you'll never have to take our word for it. Learn why our clients loved working with us and why they'd choose us again.More Video Testimonials

How do I know if I have a case?
If you were injured in any way--medically, emotionally, physically, in a car, at work, on the street--then you may have a case. Employers, companies, and individuals have a "duty of care." This term refers to each person's obligation to avoid actions or situations that endanger other people.
What if I can't afford an injury attorney?
Personal injury attorneys offer their services on what is called a "contingency fee" basis. That means we pay for all the upfront costs of your case--hiring specialists, paying court fees, even covering medical care. You owe us nothing, and we only take a fee if you win your case.
When should I call about my case?
As soon as possible, ideally. Give our personal injury law firm a call to speak with one of our staff members confidentially, even if it's not normal business hours where you are. Also feel free to fill out our contact form with some basic information about you and your case. A member of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.
Will you tell me how much my case is worth?
Once we've investigated the basic details of your injuries and your case, we'll be able to tell you how much compensation you're entitled to. While we (and no ethical attorney) can make promises regarding your case, we can help calculate the costs and lost wages caused by your harm.
What sort of cases are you equipped to handle?
Arnold & Itkin’s injury attorneys have tried virtually every type and size of plaintiff’s claim possible. We’ve handled cases on behalf of people injured in car crashes, oilfield veterans injured on offshore rigs, and even businessmen who have been wronged by their partners. Our firm has made a name for itself in a variety of legal areas. Our results in complex areas like commercial litigation, pharmaceutical injury, trucking accidents, property contamination, and maritime law barely scratch the surface. Whatever the nature of your injury, we have the experience and resources to demand compensation on your behalf.
