Lawsuit Filed for Severely Injured Longshoreman

| Sep 9, 2020 | Personal Injury

Spagnoletti Law Firm recently filed suit on behalf of a Longshoreman who was injured while working on a vessel in the Port of Galveston.  The worker was injured while pulling on a defective chain on the vessel the Happy Buccaneer. Part of the chain broke and struck the longshoreman violently, causing injuries to his arm, back, and waist.  Now, he requires substantial medical treatment through no fault of his own.

It goes without saying that maritime companies must ensure a vessel’s equipment and appurtenances are maintained in safe working condition.  Failing to do so can place everyone on board the vessel in danger.  Safe maritime operators must ensure that their vessels are safe, so that work may be accomplished in a safe manner. When maritime companies fail to do this, catastrophic injuries can result.

Our attorneys have extensive experience representing injured longshoremen who have been seriously injured as a result of the negligence of another party. Spagnoletti Law Firm has lawyers admitted to practice in Texas, Florida and New York, and has handled these lawsuits throughout the country.

The experienced maritime attorneys at Spagnoletti Law Firm can help you understand your rights as a longshoreman. There are strict and short time limits on making claims related to vessel accidents, so please contact us online or call 713-659-0257 or 877-678-5864 to learn more about your rights.
