  • David Charbonnet vs. Grand Oil & Gas Inc. et al

    PA - Cory Itkin, J - Gary Sanderson

    A Louisiana seaman has filed suit against his employers, alleging he did not receive proper care for his illness while offshore.
    David Charbonnet filed a personal injury suit under the Jones Act against Grand Oil and Gas, Laredo Offshore Services and Laredo Offshore Constructors on Jan. 23 in Jefferson County District Court.

    According to the original complaint, Charbonnet was working as a seaman on the L/B Petite in March 2007 when he began to experience severe stomach pains. The vessel is a Class 150 Lift Boat owned by Laredo Offshore for work on offshore drilling rigs and platforms.
    Charbonnet says he complained of the pains and requested medical attention while the vessel was off the shore of Jefferson County, but did not receive proper care, the suit states.

    Charbonnet claims he was later diagnosed with ulcerative colitis.

    Because he was not treated in a timely or proper fashion, Charbonnet sustained physical pain and mental anguish, according to the complaint.
