NEW ORLEANS — A maritime worker is suing a marina business, alleging the defendant's negligence led to injuries for the plaintiff.
Jules Bentley filed a lawsuit Nov. 7 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Servicio Marina Superior LLC, alleging the employer breached its legally imposed duty of reasonable care owed the plaintiff.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 31, 2015, Bentley was employed as a seaman aboard the defendant's M/V Todd Danos when he experienced an accident that resulted in serious painful injuries to his body. As a result, the suit says, he has suffered physical, mental and emotional pain, loss of wages, disability and medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant failed to provide a reasonably safe place to work, failed to properly train and supervise Bentley and failed to honor its maintenance and cure obligation.
Bentley seeks trial by jury, judgment for all damages plus interest, all court costs, expert fees and all other equitable relief. He is represented by attorneys Timothy J. Young, Tammy D. Harris, Megan C. Misko and Daniel J. Poolson Jr. of The Young Law Firm in New Orleans.
