Maritime LawWe have been recognized by Best Lawyers® Best Law Firms as among the best maritime law firms in the nation. That honor, however, isn't the only recognition of our success in these kinds of claims. Our legal team has represented thousands of victims of offshore disasters, including 27 crew members aboard the Deepwater Horizon, widows of the sinking of the El Faro, and countless others.
Plant AccidentsPlant and refinery workers are vital to American industry. Unfortunately, fewer and fewer employers are willing to invest in their workers with basic safety equipment, training, and maintenance. As a result, plant accidents and refinery explosions have become more common. It's our duty to fight for workers who have been harmed by profit-driven employers. It's our calling to make sure those workers are taken care of for the rest of their lives.
Truck AccidentsTruck accidents are devastating. At tens of thousands of pounds and speeds of 50 mph or more, commercial trucks represent some of the least regulated and most dangerous vehicles on the road. Shipping companies have refused to take responsibility, and motorists and professional truckers alike have paid the price. Arnold & Itkin has been fighting back. By holding negligent trucking companies accountable, we've been able to help our clients recover while making the roads safer.
Catastrophic InjuriesCatastrophic injuries aren't defined by pain or damage or where the injury took place. They're defined by how much they change our lives. From requiring specialized equipment to altering our relationship with our own bodies, catastrophic injuries are life-altering to the core—and the companies at fault deserve to be held accountable. Arnold & Itkin is the premier advocate for people whose lives have been destroyed by negligence.
Work InjuriesFor over 100 years, industrial work has been a dangerous way to make a living. Aging factories and poor safety policies have made industrial workers some of the most at-risk employees worldwide. From chemical refineries to construction sites, workers all over the U.S. are getting injured by employers who can’t be bothered to keep them safe. Arnold & Itkin has been fighting back. When workers suffer harm due to company negligence, we make sure they're taken care of.
Vehicle AccidentsMillions of motor vehicle accidents occur every year, leaving hundreds of thousands of people injured and traumatized. In a world where technology has taken greater leaps and bounds in the last 20 years than the previous 100, drivers must be more cautious than ever. Our firm's job is to make sure drivers, auto manufacturers, and insurance companies take responsibility for traffic accidents so survivors and families can rebuild.
Aviation AccidentsFlight accidents are some of the most feared and horrifying disasters a person can experience. As soon as one occurs, there’s a race between pilots, airlines, airports, and airplane manufacturers to deny responsibility. Our firm cuts through all the noise and conducts an objective investigation to get to the truth. Once we find it, we ensure whoever is responsible pays for their wrongdoing.
Oilfield AccidentsWithout basic protections, oil and gas excavation companies are using derrick operators, truck drivers, and other oilfield workers like cannon fodder. Our duty is to ensure that injured workers have access to medical care, money for bills and daily costs, and other vital needs. Just as importantly, our duty is to make sure oil companies are doing everything they can to keep workers safe.
Railroad AccidentsThere are few incidents that cause as much devastation as rail accidents. Regardless of whether you were injured as a passenger, pedestrian, or employee of the railroad, these are accidents that cause catastrophic and life-altering injuries. At Arnold & Itkin, we stand up for the rights of train accident survivors and do everything possible to aid their recovery. With billions in results, we know how to win—regardless of who we're facing.
Insurance ClaimsWhen events like Hurricane Harvey hit, it's impossible to be fully prepared for the coming damage. That is why insurance exists. Unfortunately, some insurance companies will gladly take your money to give you peace of mind but will refuse to honor your claim when disaster strikes. At Arnold & Itkin, we expose unethical insurance practices, putting everything we have into helping you recover and rebuild.
