Lawsuit Filed for Injured Jones Act Seaman

by | Aug 16, 2019 | Civil litigation, Maritime Law

Spagnoletti Law Firm recently filed suit on behalf of a worker who was injured on a barge drilling rig.  At the time, the worker had climbed into the derrick on the rig in order to remove sheaves that held air-hoist cables from each of the pad-eyes in that location. During the course of removing the equipment, Plaintiff sustained significant injuries to his body.  The lawsuit brings negligence claims under the Jones Act against Parker Drilling Management Services, Ltd. and Parker USA Drilling Company.  The lawsuit also alleges the vessel was unseaworthy on the date of the incident and that Plaintiff is entitled to maintenance and cure benefits.

The Plaintiff is represented by attorneys Marcus R. Spagnoletti and Eric J. Rhine.
