Maritime Personal Injury- Negligence

Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers has filed suit against Oceaneering International Inc. and the Encore Group LLC for negligence, unseaworthiness, and wrongful denial of maintenance and cure arising from back, neck, and shoulder injuries sustained upon the Defendant’s’ vessel.  At the time of the incident, Doyle LLP’s client was working as a cook onboard Defendant’s’ vessel, the MSV Ocean Alliance.

Due to the lack of a proper ladder and other inadequate equipment, Doyle LLP’s Client sustained painful neck, back, and shoulder injuries. The suit alleges that the Defendants were negligent in creating the condition that caused its client’s injuries, and that the vessel, MSV Ocean Alliance, was unseaworthy because of its improper equipment.  The suit also alleges that Doyle LLP’s Client has been wrongfully denied maintenance and cure, a duty that every maritime employer owes to the members of its crew.

The suit seeks recovery of lost wages and medical expenses and compensation for pain and suffering, mental anguish, and physical impairment, among other damages.
