Maritime attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin, and Noah Wexler with Arnold & Itkin LLP have recently filed a Jones Act lawsuit on behalf of an injured galley hand from Beaumont, Texas. This female offshore worker sustained injuries while she was working abroad the Atwood Condor and was asked to move trash. During this task she fell and hurt her back and has yet to be paid her rightful workers' compensation from her employers. Her employers have not provided her with any form of disability including maintenance and cure in which she is due. Arnold & Itkin attorneys are pleased to advocate on her behalf and help this injured worker obtained the proper compensation that she deserves for her pain and suffering on the job. The case was filed in Jefferson County, Texas.
