Arnold & Itkin has filed a case against Gulf Resource Management, Inc. ("GRMI"), Energy XXI GOM, LLC, Energy XXI Services, LLC, and Energy XXI Holdings, Inc.. The plaintiff in the case is an American seaman who was injured aboard the Ella Claire vessel. While performing his basic job duties, the plaintiff slipped and fell and suffered serious injuries to his shoulder and other parts of his body. The injured worker is now seeking damages for lost current and future wages as well as medical expenses and physical anguish.
The lawsuit alleges that the defendants failed to properly supervise and train their employees, failed to provide adequate safety equipment and medical training, and failed to maintain the vessel.
Maritime attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin and Noah Wexler will be representing the plaintiff.
