AAttorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and another attorney from Arnold & Itkin have filed suit on behalf of an injured seaman who is filing suit against TransOcean. The plaintiff's injury was sustained on his first hitch out with TransOcean as he was instructed to conduct an unsafe procedure by his employer to untie pipes. However, when the plaintiff acted accordingly, he incurred severe knee injuries because his leg was logged into the set of pipes. Doctors claim that the victim's leg injury was so severe that it has caused his bones within the knee to rub against one another. This case is currently pending in Harris County, Texas.
