Those who are injured or wronged by negligence deserve the best medical care and support to get back on their feet. Unfortunately, most of these people are not given the resources they need to recover; instead, their injuries become permanent, they get buried in debt, and their families lose their hard-won financial stability. Arnold & Itkin exists to prevent that from happening to you.
For centuries, working offshore has been a risky way to make a living. Some of the oldest laws in the world govern how captains and vessel owners should provide for injured sailors, showing us that seamen have needed protection for as long as we’ve traveled the ocean. While we have more advanced tools, equipment, and vessels than ever before, offshore work remains just as dangerous.
Plants and refineries are the backbone of American industry, but companies are less and less willing to invest in their workforces. Workers are stretched too thin, there are fewer safety inspections, and refineries are aging without maintenance. As a result, the odds of a plant or refinery accident are at an all-time high. At Arnold & Itkin, our plant accident attorneys fight for injured workers who have been endangered by their employers.
Best Lawyers® Best Law Firms has named us one of the best offshore law firms in the country. We’ve represented victims of some of the largest at-sea disasters in recent history, including widows left behind by the El Faro sinking, a third of the Deepwater Horizon crew, and thousands of others. We have the resources, experience, and determination to fight for your future after a maritime disaster. No matter the odds.
Catastrophic injuries aren’t defined by where or how they occur. They're defined by their long-term impact on your life. The way you think, the way you move, and your relationship with your own limits are all irreparably changed, forcing you to adapt your life to a new reality. Our role is to advocate for survivors by holding at-fault parties accountable and providing for their lifelong needs.
Manufacturers and marketers have one duty above all: to make sure their products are safe to use. Unfortunately, motivated by profits over consumer safety, some fail to uphold this duty. The result is massive harm on a large scale. The people who pay for these mistakes are often our most vulnerable: children, the elderly, and the health-compromised. When it comes to holding big companies accountable for unsafe products, Arnold & Itkin's product liability lawyers are up to the challenge.
Industrial work has long been the pride of America’s workforce, but it’s also been a source of long-term damage and pain for countless men and women. Few employers are willing to invest in creating safe workplaces, cutting corners on inspections while providing less and less safety equipment. Aging factories and safety violations are an employer’s responsibility; our job is to hold them accountable when they refuse to accept this.
Pharmaceutical companies are some of the most well-equipped and well-funded legal opponents. Any lawyer can file a lawsuit, but few firms have successfully taken Big Pharma to task for unsafe products. Arnold & Itkin, however, has won hundreds of millions in victories against the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. Companies like Johnson & Johnson think twice before they face us in court; that’s the best review we could ask for.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people are left hurt or grieving after a motor vehicle accident. Truck accidents, car accidents, and motorcycle accidents have claimed countless lives. As technology improves, it has become easier and easier to be a safe driver, which is why it’s more important than ever to hold bad drivers accountable for the harm they cause.
Oil Rig Explosions
Working long hours miles away from the shore, oil rig workers have one of the most demanding jobs on the planet. That’s why it’s vital for companies to invest in rig safety, updated equipment, and periodic maintenance. Without dedicating the proper resources to protecting oil rig workers, catastrophic explosions, blowouts, and accidents will continue to put lives at risk. Arnold & Itkin has represented thousands of rig workers against some of the world's largest oil and drilling companies.
Crashes and accidents in flight are traumatic—and in many cases, deadly. When a plane or helicopter goes down, the race to deny responsibility begins. While pilots, airlines, airports, and manufacturers all point fingers at each other, our firm is there to investigate the accident and find out who’s really at fault. Once we’ve pieced together what happened, we do everything we can to make sure our clients get everything they need to move forward.
Drilling for oil on land is as dangerous as it is offshore. Oil and gas excavation companies are responsible for making sure derrick operators, truck drivers, and other oilfield workers are kept as safe as possible. When they fail to do so, our oilfield accident firm will be there to make sure workers and their families get the money they need for medical care, shelter, food, and lost wages.
Railroads are a testament to American industry and invention, but they have the potential to cause devastating accidents. Trains weigh thousands of tons, which means any collision could be life-altering—even fatal. Arnold & Itkin represents train workers, passengers, pedestrians, and motorists whose lives have been destroyed in railroad accidents. Our track record of success in railroad litigation means we’re prepared to fight for the best possible results in every case for every client.
Trucks are the heart of the American economy. If you own it or eat it, a truck probably helped bring it to you. However, commercial shipping companies are some of the biggest perpetrators of negligence on the highway, making accidents more likely with overworked drivers and harsh scheduling. Motorists and truckers alike are harmed by shipping company practices, but Arnold & Itkin is fighting back.
Arnold & Itkin fights for the injured and wronged, and that includes those who have suffered losses through acts of negligence against their businesses or prospects. As litigators, we know how precious your financial health is; that’s why people who commit breaches of contract, fraud, and unethical practices need to be held accountable in court. As a firm that’s won record-setting litigation awards again and again, we have the resources and experience to protect your interests.
Insurance companies used to have one duty: provide relief to disaster victims when they filed a claim. However, modern insurance companies are more likely to serve shareholders than claimants; as a result, disaster victims often receive low-ball offers that don’t meet their needs. In many cases, claimants are denied outright without reason. Arnold & Itkin refuses to let insurers treat our clients poorly. If you need help pursuing an insurance claim after a natural disaster, speak with our insurance attorneys today.
Your property's welfare is tied to your health and the well-being of your community. Corporations may be allowed to lease or use your land, but that doesn’t entitle them to poison your water, pollute your air, or leave dangerous equipment behind. Arnold & Itkin fights to protect our clients’ property and livelihood, holding corporations accountable and restoring their land.
Our legal team is honored to stand up for the rights of those who have been severely injured, as well as their families. Throughout our legal careers, we have remained devoted attorneys; in all cases, we seek to go above and beyond in our efforts to help clients fight to maximize their recovery.
