NEW ORLEANS – A seaman alleges he was injured on the job because of his employers' negligence.
Troy Campfield filed a complaint on Nov. 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Cvitanovic Towing LLC and Cvitanovic Bros. Inc.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 19, 2013, he was directly employed by the defendants working aboard a vessel when he was injured while executing his duties. He alleges he was caused to suffer past and future pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss wages and medical expenses. The plaintiff holds Cvitanovic Towing LLC and Cvitanovic Bros.
