Michael, a welder employed by Clean Blast, LLC, was injured while working on a jack up rig owned by Global Santa Fe Drilling Company.
Michael was welding in a confined space and as he was climbing down a ladder, he slipped and fell because the ladder was wet from a water leak on the vessel. Michael mainly injured his neck in this offshore accident.
When Michael's employer refused to provide him with maintenance and cure as required by the Jones Act, he hired VB Attorneys to represent him.
VB's lawyers assisted Michael in his claim for maintenance and cure and also filed a Jones Act lawsuit on his behalf. VB Attorneys proved that the company was responsible under the Jones Act for Michael's accident, and negotiated a confidential settlement on behalf of Michael for his Jones Act case.
