Doyle Files Suit Against St. James Stevedoring

On September 3, 2010, Doyle filed suit in the Nueces County Court at Law against St. James Stevedoring on behalf of a deckhand injured off the coast of Texas. Doyle’s client is a Jones Act seaman and the lawsuit is based on the Jones Act and general maritime law which require that St. James Stevedoring owed the seaman a duty to provide a safe place to work, including a competent and adequately sized crew, proper equipment to complete the job, and a safe vessel. As a result of undermanning the vessel and not providing proper equipment for operations to save a damaged barge, the seaman suffered serious injuries to his back and leg. Doyle specializes in Jones Act and other Maritime cases and is proud to enforce this injured worker’s rights
