Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Jason Itkin, Caj Boatright, Roland Christensen, and Trent Shelton have filed suit in Travis County, Texas on behalf of a young woman who was severely injured when she slipped and fell down a stairway on a boat.
The boat owner failed to make sure that the stairs had anti-slip protection – a basic safety precaution on areas of vessels that will get slippery even in normal sea and weather conditions. Our client fell as a result, breaking her femur and suffering a kidney contusion. She has since been diagnosed with a Morel-Lavallée lesion, which has caused the muscle from her hip down to above the knee to die completely. Her doctors have said there is no chance of recovery from this condition.
The defendants in this case have jeopardized our client’s ability as a single mother to provide for herself and her children. Our boat accident attorneys will fight tirelessly until our client is fairly compensated for her injuries and can build a better future for herself and her family.
