NEW ORLEANS – A man alleges he remains unfit and incapable of returning to his duties after an accident on a vessel.
Corey Welch filed a complaint on June 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Bertucci Contracting Co. LLC alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 3, 2016, he was employed by defendant working aboard M/V AB8 when he experienced an accident resulting in serious painful injuries to his left hand and other parts of his body. The plaintiff alleges he was rendered unfit to work and presently remains unfit and incapable of returning to duty as a seaman.
