A man from Mississippi has filed a personal injury suit against Rowan Companies, claiming that he suffered leg and back injuries while employed as a medic aboard a ship.

According to the suit filed in Texas’ Jefferson County District Court on July 22 by Curtis Woulard, he was employed on Gorilla II, a ship owned by Rowan Companies, on January 26, when he suffered severe and disabling injuries during the course of operations in Sabine, Texas.

Woulard did not specify how he suffered the injuries, but claims that it was because of the ship not being seaworthy.

The suit claims that the incident caused Woulard to suffer physical pain and impairment and mental anguish, lose wages and the ability to perform household services, and incur medical expenses.

Woulard claims Rowan Companies failed in its duty to provide him with maintenance and cure and has denied him payments for his injuries, despite the fact that he has not reached maximum medical improvement.

Woulard seeks actual and exemplary damages.
