Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers filed an offshore injury case against Chipolbrok America, Inc. for injuries suffered by its client while working on the M/V Chipolbrok Atlantic. The suit, which was filed in Harris County District Court, in Houston, Texas, arises from injuries that occurred while working on the ship on July 2, 2017.
Doyle LLP brought the case under the general maritime law of the United States of America, under the “saving to suitors” clause. The suit seeks to collect a legal debt and damages due and owing to its Client due to the negligence of Chipolbrok, directly contributing to serious injuries that occurred on July 2, 2017. On that date, Doyle LLP’s Client was assigned by Cooper/Ports America to work aboard the M/V Chipolbrok Atlantic, which was a vessel owned and operated by Defendant Chipolbrok. During unloading operations, Chipolbrok failed to ensure a safe working environment on pipes that were being loaded. While Doyle LLP’s Client was walking on a load of pipes to assist in the unloading operations, he fell through a covering or platform that was improperly secured and unfit. As a result, he suffered injuries to his shoulder, wrist, elbow, back, knee, and body generally.
