Lawsuit Followed for Injured Jones Act Seaman

by | Dec 2, 2019 | Civil litigation, Personal Injury

Spagnoletti Law Firm recently filed suit on behalf of a Jones Act seaman who was injured while working on a vessel, the Caribou.  The worker was injured when he attempted to exit from a walk-in-cooler on the vessel.  As he stepped down onto a step in order to exit the cooler, the injured seaman slipped and fell to the floor of the vessel, sustaining severe injuries.  The lawsuit brings claims against Go Marine Services, LLC and Adriatic Marine, L.L.C.  The lawsuit alleges that the two Defendants were negligent in:

(a) failing to provide proper and adequate crew on the vessel;
(b) failing to maintain the vessel and her appurtenances and/or equipment in a safe and reasonable state of repair;
(c) failing to take reasonable precautions for Plaintiff’s safety;
(d) failing to provide Plaintiff with a reasonably safe place to work

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