NEW ORLEANS – A seaman has filed suit against his employer alleging he was injured while on the job.
Richard Dubuisson filed a complaint on April 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against A.I.S. Inc. of Massachusetts alleging that the employer failed to provide a reasonably safe place to work.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 23, 2015, he experienced an accident that resulted in serious painful injuries to his back and other parts of his body while employed by defendant. The plaintiff holds A.I.S. Inc. of Massachusetts responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to properly train and supervise him, failed to take any means or precautions for the safety of its employees, created and maintained an unseaworthy vessel, and failed to provide adequate equipment to perform his job.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for special and general damages, present and future medical expenses, attorney’s fees and costs and all cure benefits to which he is entitled. He is represented by Timothy J. Young, Tammy D. Harris, Megan C. Misko and Daniel J. Polson Jr. of The Young Firm in New Orleans.
