Arnold & Itkin LLP maritime lawyers recently filed a Jones Act lawsuit in Houston, TX on behalf of a Louisiana man who was hurt on the job. The deckhand was working on a lift boat when a coworker put him in a headlock and severely injured his neck. The company would not pay any of his medical bills and eventually fired the injured worker. This is in direct violation of the Jones Act which maintains that maritime workers deserve compensation in workplace accidents. Our lawyers filed the case to help the worker get the medical attention he needs and make up for his lost wages since the incident.
If you have been injured in an offshore injury accident, then you may also be eligible for compensation under the Jones Act.

If you discover that you have been robbed of due wages or damages, then a lawyer from Arnold & Itkin can come to your aid.
