Arnold & Itkin recently filed a suit for their client, an injured Jones Act seaman, in Harris County, Texas. The plaintiff was injured when he was working on a vessel in Louisiana waters. The injured worker's co-worker was reprimanded for making other workers assist in removing debris from the vessel. After this, the worker was made to unload the vessel on her own. This is when she sustained her severe neck and shoulder injuries. These injuries forced her to have to undergo orthopedic medical treatment.
