Congratulations Vale and Tweedel

Rick Vale and Brett Tweedel achieved a resounding victory from the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on a Longshore Harbor Workers Compensation Act case concerning the doctrine of last responsible employer. The claimant alleged significant pulmonary injuries were sustained impacting the claimant’s wage earning capacity and requiring substantial medical care and treatment. Due to the successful defense brought by Mr. Vale and Mr. Tweedel our client was found free of all liability.
