Offshore Worker Injured During Personnel Transfer Basket Won $3.2 Million Verdict at Trial

After injuring his lower back and neck during an offshore personnel transfer, Calvin’s company refused to pay for his medical treatment or compensate him for his injuries. Realizing that he needed to look out for himself and his family, he turned to the Maritime Lawyers at Zehl & Associates, who, after a 4 week trial in Louisiana federal court, recovered a $3.2 Million verdict.


I Was Dropped Over 10 Feet During An Offshore Personnel Transfer

Calvin: We was heading offshore and we was getting on a bulletproof basket, and the crane operator he came up with the load but the basket got caught in the back of the hammer of the crew boat. It threw us. It threw me out the basket and all I knew was we went in the air, I went in the air, and then it came down pretty hard. Then I suffered a head injury, a neck injury and a back injury.
