Like many of our clients, our most recent was working hard as a seaman on his commercial vessel, when his employer’s negligence suddenly landed him on the ship's deck in serious pain. Though it is the responsibility of leaders on commercial ships, our client's employer failed to maintain a safe ship for their employees.
The deck our plaintiff was working on had not been properly cleaned, meaning that it did not contain the necessary nonstick components on the surface. This lack of necessary protection put the entire crew in danger but resulted in a slip and fall that injured our client's neck and back. Our client now has sturdy grounds for legal recourse.
Protecting Our Client's Rights
Arnold & Itkin will represent our client in his just pursuit of compensation. Among other financial burdens imposed on our client from this injury, our legal team will seek retribution for the medical bills from his required treatments, as well as the wages he and his family continue to lose while he embarks on recovery.
We believe our client to have suffered an event that happens much too often in members of our nation’s workforce. It is our honor to use our resources in fighting with our client against the perils of a dangerous workplace. His case has been filed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and we look forward to advocating our client's rights.
