Offshore Worker Who Injured Knee After Slipping on Barge Discusses Working with Our Jones Act Lawyers
Barge worker who obtained a substantial settlement after injuring his back and knee discusses why hiring the Maritime Lawyers at Zehl & Associates was the best decision he’s made.
I was working in a boat. We were doing a coast guard inspection and I slipped and fell. That’s why I got hurt – my knee, my back.
The Company’s Response
The company sent me to their own doctor to check me. The doctor looked at me and said I was good to go back to work. I’m the one who was feeling whatever was happening to my body, they didn’t know nothing about the pain. For me, I was just calling, looking for doctor because the pain, it was worse and worse.
Hiring A Lawyer
The company, they don’t care about me. They don’t care about my family. They just care about sending me back to work, like nothing happened. I had to hire lawyer to protect me and protect my family.
