Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and another attorney from Arnold & Itkin are representing a client who was wrongfully injured while working offshore. On his behalf, they have filed a suit against Southern States Offshore, Inc. holding them accountable for injuries sustained by their client while working on one of their vessels in the Gulf of Mexico. The plaintiff was instructed to unload cargo from the vessel while the seas were rough and as a result fell backwards landing on a pad-eye.
This accident led to the victim receiving both back and shoulder injuries. While there are a number of concerns with the overall safety of the vessel, one pressing issue was that there was minimal space separating the cargo on the deck. Due to the restricted space, the workers' were often required to crawl over the cargo in order to move around; this too contributed to the plaintiff's injury on the vessel. The case was filed and is currently pending in Harris County, Texas.
