Case Filed for Jones Act Seaman Injured in Elevator Accident

Arnold & Itkin is representing a Jones Act seaman who was severely injured while working on an offshore oil rig. This happened when an elevator malfunctioned and fell, critically injuring our client’s leg, leaving them with significant physical and emotional distress.

While offshore oil rigs are a naturally hazard-filled worksite, far too many accidents are highly preventable, such as in the case of equipment malfunctions. Oil companies are responsible for upholding safety protocols to the letter so that life-changing and life-threatening accidents don’t occur. However, oil companies routinely try to cut costs, and this quickly becomes a reason to cut corners, leading to preventable, catastrophic injuries for the workers for whom they are responsible.

We are committed to ensuring that our client receives the full compensation that they are entitled to under the Jones Act, which includes coverage for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Arnold & Itkin will diligently pursue justice and hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligence.
