After sustaining a serious injury to the foot, an injured offshore worker has approached Attorney Kurt Arnold and another attorney from Arnold & Itkin to file a lawsuit on his behalf. The injury took place when a 67 pound block fell 80 feet from where it was suspended and landed upon the foot of the plaintiff. The strength of the impact was so severe that it caused the muscles and skin to be forced out of the side of the victim's foot. He has had several medical procedures performed on the affected area, and it is to be expected that more may be necessary in the future. The claim was filed against W&T Offshore in Galveston County Court.
