Crew Member Injury Our client worked as a Jones Act Seaman (“crewmember”) aboard a workboat in the Caribbean. As a part of his duties, he was required to change out light bulbs and broken fixtures mounted 15' above a deck. No hoist or lift was provided by his employer, necessitating that he use a ladder and lean out to reach the fixture. No helper was provided to assist. Our client fell resulting in a fractured tibia-fibula, multiple surgeries and RSD. The ship-owner (U.S. Government) & employer paid $1,290,000.00 to avoid going to trial.
