Offshore work is a vital but dangerous part of the US economy. Without offshore workers, businesses and communities would be left without vital sources of income or crucial goods. It’s only fair that when maritime workers are injured, companies provide everything they need for medical care, lost wages, and more.
Unfortunately, it’s rare that a company will actually provide what a worker needs to survive and recover—at least voluntarily. That’s why Arnold & Itkin LLP is committed to fighting for offshore workers to get everything they need. No matter what.
Offshore accidents are almost always preventable, and we know that because the vast majority of them share the same root cause. In a handful of our recent cases, our clients—ranging from vessel workers to oil rig workers to longshoremen—all suffered serious or life-changing injuries due to employer negligence. It’s that negligence we seek to hold accountable in court to ensure that our clients are taken care of, while making it less likely that someone else will suffer from the same mistake.
Our recent offshore clients include:
- An oil rig worker injured due to unsafe living quarters
- Two seamen injured by an unsafe work environment
- A longshoreman injured while loading cargo
We look forward to helping all these men recover the cost of their medical care, disability accommodations, lost wages, future earnings, and any other losses they’ve suffered as a result of their accidents.
We filed four lawsuits in Harris County, Texas and one lawsuit in King County, Washington.
