Deckhand Files Lawsuit

A deckhand has filed a lawsuit against his employer for injuries he sustained in a fall accident. The worker filed a lawsuit against his employer, Florida Marine Transporters. According to the lawsuit, on April 20, 2010, the deckhand was working on the Howard Blank HBI, when he fell down a flight of stairs. In the lawsuit, he alleges that insufficient lighting in the stairwell contributed to his maritime accident.

The lawsuit alleges that Florida Marine Transporters failed to maintain the tugboat in a safe condition, failed to properly illuminate the stairwell, failed to discover and correct the dangerous condition, failed to implement safety procedures and failed to provide safety devices. The lawsuit claims damages for physical pain, mental anguish, suffering, benefits, medical expenses and lost wages among others.
