Doyle Files Jones Act Suit Against Golding Barge Line

Doyle recently filed suit against Golding Barge Line in the 149th District Court of Brazoria County on behalf of a crewmember injured off the coast of Texas, near Freeport. Doyle’s client is a Jones Act seaman. The lawsuit is based upon negligence (under the Jones Act), the doctrine of unseaworthiness, and the seaman’s employer’s refusal to pay maintenance and cure. As a result of the negligence of his employer and the unseaworthiness of the vessel, a cable snapped hitting the seaman and throwing him overboard. The seaman suffered multiple injuries, including injuries to his neck, head, and face. Doyle specializes in Jones Act and other Maritime cases and is proud to enforce this injured worker’s rights.
