Suit Filed on Behalf of Injured Oil Barge Worker

On March 26, 2013, Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and another attorney from Arnold & Itkin filed suit on behalf of an injured Jones Act Seaman who suffered serious injuries while working on an oil barge located off of the coast of Louisiana. The Plaintiff was working with other crewmembers on the drilling barge and was in the middle of a blind lift when the accident happened. During the lift the plaintiff was struck in the face and head by the large pipe which immediately caused him to go unconscious.

Once he was knocked out, the victim then fell several feet off of the barge resulting in more bodily injuries after his severe head injury. As a result of the serious injuries, the victim was then forced to undergo extensive medical treatments with numerous doctors in order address the many concerns. This case was filed by Arnold & Itkin attorneys in Harris County, Texas yesterday.
