What a Personal Injury Claim Can Help You Recover

Individuals and companies have a moral and legal obligation to act with reasonable care in specific situations. Employers must provide safe workplaces for their employees, drivers must obey traffic laws, manufacturers must produce safe products, and so on. When they fail in this obligation and someone is injured or killed as a result, they can be held responsible by way of a personal injury lawsuit. These are civil actions with financial penalties.

A personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit can provide financial compensation for:

  • Hospitalization and treatment costs
  • Lost wages due to injury
  • Lost earning capacity for lifelong injuries
  • Future medical care
  • Mental and emotional anguish
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Funeral costs for fatal injuries
  • Medical costs prior to death

Compensation of this kind serves two purposes: it holds at-fault parties accountable for the harm they've caused, and it helps good people rebuild after the worst circumstances.

While all injuries, regardless of severity, can have a lasting impact on the lives of the victims, there are some that can be deemed catastrophic—both legally and personally.

Pasadena, TX Offshore Injury Attorneys

Our Pasadena Maritime Lawyers Have a National Reputation for Results

While all offshore accidents happen for different reasons, one fact unites all of them: they’re preventable. Relaxed safety standards, a lack of maintenance, and other cost-cutting measures are some of the most common causes of serious accidents. Large companies should protect workers with safety training, procedures, and thorough maintenance of a vessel. When they fail to do these, workers pay the steepest price for their negligence. When this happens, Arnold & Itkin is standing by to make sure a person can fight to hold companies accountable.

Our Pasadena offshore injury lawyers help after such incidents as:

  • Diving accidents
  • Underwater welding accidents
  • Offshore well blowouts
  • Crane failures
  • Explosions and fires
  • Collisions and allisions
  • Lifting accidents
  • Man overboard incidents

How Workers Can Recover Damages After an Offshore Accident

In 1920, the Merchant Marine Act was passed to help maritime workers enjoy the same safety standards already provided to their onshore counterparts. Popularly referred to as the Jones Act, this law is still one of the most important laws for offshore workers after they’ve been injured because of negligence.

The Jones Act allows injured seamen to pursue compensation for lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, the cost of future care, and more.

Will My Company Treat Me Right After an Offshore Accident?

They might not. Sometimes, companies promise their employees that they are committed to helping them after an accident. Sometimes, they’ll immediately offer a settlement, making it seem like they care. However, this settlement is usually designed to be as small as possible while preventing the company from being liable for further damages. Before accepting a settlement offer, all offshore workers should speak with our Pasadena offshore injury lawyers. Doing so is free and will help you decide if the settlement is fair or if you are entitled to more damages.

How Do Workers Qualify for the Jones Act?

Most offshore workers who sustain injuries while on the job qualify for compensation under the Jones Act. First, the law requires them to be on a vessel that is operating in navigable waters. This may include oil rigs, shipping vessels, barges, dredges, tugboats, fishing boats, cruise ships, and many others. Second, the Jones Act requires that a worker spends at least 30% of their time on a vessel, contributing to its duty or function.

About Pasadena, Texas

Located in the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan area, Pasadena is the second-largest city in Harris County. It was founded in 1893 by a Galveston man named John H. Burnett, who named the city after Pasadena, California. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Pasadena had an estimated population of 148,626 residents as of July 2021. That was a slight decrease from the April 2020 population estimate of 151,955. Pasadena covers a land area of 42.76 square miles and experiences hot, humid summers and cool, mild winters.

The movie Urban Cowboy, which was a critically acclaimed hit in the 1980s, was filmed and depicted life and love in Pasadena. Pasadena is also famous for its strawberries and was once the self-proclaimed “Strawberry Capital of the World” after the American Red Cross sent 1.5 million strawberry plants to its residents to help rebuild after the 1900 Galveston hurricane that devastated much of the area. Pasadena still holds its annual Strawberry Festival, attracting tens of thousands of attendees. Another key feature of Pasadena is the 2,500-acre Armand Bayou Nature Center, which is the only area in the city where the original ecosystems have been preserved.

In its earlier years, the Pasadena economy was primarily driven by agriculture, specifically strawberries and other fruit, as well as rice from Japanese settlers who relocated to the area. The Texas Oil Boom contributed to Pasadena’s continued growth, and by the late 1910s, oil refining became a primary industry in the region. World War II resulted in the further industrialization of Pasadena, and the city continued to grow. Some residents began calling the city Stinkadena due to constant pollution from industrial complexes. By the 21st century, Pasadena was considered a primarily blue-collar neighborhood of nearby Houston.

Some of the top employers in Pasadena, TX are:

  • Pasadena Independent School District
  • SGS Petroleum Service Corp
  • Boeing
  • Mundy Company
  • University of Houston-Clear Lake
  • Shell Chemical

Common Questions

  • Who Much Does It Cost to Hire a Pasadena Personal Injury Lawyer?

    Many people are fearful that hiring a lawyer is not an option for them because doing so is too expensive. When it comes to personal injury cases, this is not true. At Arnold & Itkin, we work on something known as a contingency fee basis. This means that we cover the costs associated with a case and only collect a payment if we earn results for a client. In other words, hiring us costs nothing up front and is affordable for people in any financial situation.
  • What Does Being a Trial Lawyer Mean?

    Being a trial lawyer means that we’re ready to take the other party to court if they aren’t being fair. Most cases end in out-of-court settlements. While settling out of court isn’t a bad thing, it also means that many Pasadena injury firms rarely—if ever—work inside of a courtroom. Since we have an extensive history of earning verdicts through trials, we’ll always be ready to fight for the compensation that clients deserve rather than the compensation they are initially offered. Our record also means that the other party will know you have a law firm that’s ready to counter their dishonest tactics should they decide to try and use them. Hiring a trial lawyer can also help provide you with more options, create leverage during settlement negotiations, and prepare your case for all scenarios.
  • Is There a Time Limit of Pasadena Personal Injury Claims?

    Yes, the state of Texas requires personal injury claims to be filed within two years of the date they occurred. Because of this statute of limitations, it’s important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Doing so will help provide the time your case needs for success. If you’re close to meeting the deadline for being able to file a claim, contacting our team as soon as possible is crucial for your recovery.
