Arnold & Itkin maritime lawyers Jason Itkin and Trent Shelton filed suit last week in Paducah, Kentucky on behalf of an injured seaman.
Our client, a husband and hardworking deckhand, suffered severe injuries to the head when he was asked by his company to do a task that he hadn't been trained to do. He sustained injuries to his right eye and right orbital bone, and he suffers severe headaches.
In a statement, our attorneys said, "Far too often, we see companies in the maritime industry expose their workers to things that they have not been trained for. This circumstance was no different. The company failed to take one step to train our client on the task he was asked to do at the time of his injury. We look forward to holding this defendant accountable."
