Stray Metal Particles Allegedly Injury Offshore Worker
A former employee of Phoenix International Holdings Inc., is suing his former employer as well as several affiliated parties for alleged negligence which resulted in injuries sustained while working offshore.
On October 16, John Bubenik of Florida filed suit in the Eastern District Court of Louisiana against Phoenix International Holdings Inc., MC Offshore Petroleum Inc., and its insurers. In the suit, Bubenik alleges that unsafe conditions lead to the injuring of his eye while on the job.
Bubenik was working aboard the Odyssea Courage and was employed by Phoenix International Holdings Inc. as a dive supervisor, commercial diver and seaman. The defendants were performing water blasting on the vessel, and at some point this activity caused metal particles to careen into his eye, causing an abrasion of the cornea. Bubenik was airlifted from the worksite to receive medical treatment on October 21. Bubenik’s suit alleges that the defendant’s lack of care while working was a contributing factor in his injury.
