Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Jason Itkin, Caj Boatright, Roland Christensen, and Trent Shelton at Arnold & Itkin LLP filed a Jones Act claim against the employer of a seaman who was seriously injured while working offshore. The employer and owner of the vessel failed to fulfill their basic duties to provide a safe work environment while our client was aboard.
Because of the employer’s negligence, our client has suffered severe injuries that will make him unable to walk for the foreseeable future. He is already scheduled for a total knee replacement, and the possibility of additional surgeries are likely. As a result, our client is facing an uncertain future, as his ability to provide for himself and his family is under threat. The medical care he needs also presents a serious financial burden to him and his loved ones.
Arnold and Itkin is proud to represent this man and will hold his employer responsible for the injuries he has suffered. We intend to fight for everything our client needs to rebuild his life.
The suit was filed in Harris County, Texas.
