Our client, a married young man with children, was maritime worker and Jones Act seaman working aboard a barge when he sustained a cervical (neck) injury consisting of a bulging disc which did not require surgery. Initially, the defendant offered a very small amount in settlement. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans. As a trial date approached, the defendant ultimately agreed to settle the case for $200,000.
