Doyle LLP is proud to announce that a settlement in two Jones Act claims was reached with Chet Morrison on behalf of two seamen who were injured in March 2008 when the Jillian Morrison exploded off of the coast of Louisiana. As a result, the seamen suffered from spinal injuries and post traumatic stress disorder. The agreement, which involves a confidential sum of money, recognizes that Chet Morrison failed to take proper precaution in the storage of explosive gas aboard the vessel.
Both cases were pending in Harris County District Court. One was before the Honorable Bill Burke in the 189th District Court, and the other was before the Honorable Sharon McCally in the 334th District Court.
