Maritime Personal Injury Settlement – $650K

semi-submersibleOur client was a drill crew employee aboard a semi-submersible vessel when a drag block fell 4 to 5 feet onto his neck. He sustained significant injuries to his neck and required a single level cervical discectomy and fusion. We filed a Jones Act law suit in federal court on his behalf. The Judge agreed the vessel was unseaworthy and that the unseaworthiness was a cause of our client’s injury. Defendants conceded that our client played no role in the causation of the incident or his injury. We are pleased that this case recently settled for $650,000.
