Seaman’s Claim for Injuries
Plaintiff’s safety glasses continued to fog up while working aboard a vessel as a QMED Electrician. Despite his request, he was not provided with any anti-fog wipes for his glasses. When Plaintiff used a cargo hold exhaust vent to let the wind dry off the glasses’ interior, a piece of metal blew into Plaintiff’s right eye and caused a center corneal scar. As a result, he was unable to hold a career as QMED Electrician or any other seagoing position because his vision in the right eye dropped significantly and he had total night blindness. The parties settled for an undisclosed amount.
