All Claims Dismissed for Client

6.10.21

An inland marine client was involved in a multi-party, multi-vessel fleeting incident that resulted in a Jones Act seaman’s personal injuries including allegations of traumatic brain injury.  The court granted summary judgment on all claims of unseaworthiness against the client, and after a weeklong bench trial in the Eastern District of Texas, Beaumont Division, the client’s Complaint for Exoneration from and Limitation of Liability was granted exonerating the client and dismissing all claims against the client with prejudice. The trial team consisted of Liskow maritime lawyers Michael Golemi, Lauren Bridges, and Jody Schisel-Meslin.
