Offshore Worker Who Almost Died After Contracting Pneumonia Receives Record Breaking Settlement

Our Jones Act Lawyers Obtained a Record-Setting Settlement for a Cargo Ship worker who contracted Pneumonia while working offshore.

I Almost Died Offshore 

“If I wouldn’t have gotten off the ship and came home at the time I did, I would have died.”

How Did The Company Treat You

“No one in the company ever tried to contact me or check to see how I was doing, even though I tried to contact them. They didn’t seem to care. After about four months of even trying to tell them about how I was doing, they gave me the runaround and told me that I needed to pay for my own bills, even though it’s required by the Jones Act that they pay for my medical bills when on a ship.”

When Did You Hire A Maritime Lawyer?

“My medical bills were starting to pile up from the surgery I had and from being in the hospital for so long. At that point, I decided to take it into my own hands and hire a professional that could represent me.”

Why I Chose the Maritime Lawyers at Zehl & Associates

“I picked Zehl & Associates because I did my research on them, saw that they had success with other maritime cases, that they would go to court for me to make sure that I was taken care of for what I’ve gone through, and that I wouldn’t get a low settlement offer, that I would get the maximum amount that I could get.”
