Professional Profile:
Kurt Arnold is one of the most accomplished trial lawyers in the country. He has secured billions of dollars in verdicts and settlements since founding Arnold & Itkin. He has recovered $1 billion in the last 12 months alone, earning his reputation as a national leader in catastrophic injury litigation many times over. He has won numerous record-setting results for his clients—each one representing a second chance at a better life for workers, families, and homeowners.

Kurt continues to hold the record for various results around the nation. He won $117 million in the largest single-incident verdict in Louisiana history, won $44 million in the largest verdict for an amputee victim, secured $42 million in Hawaii’s largest-ever commercial verdict, and settled a case for $29 million in the largest result for an offshore death case in U.S. history. Kurt also represented 27 members of the crew from the Deepwater Horizon disaster, achieving record-setting settlements that provided for the rest of their lives. No other firm represented as many members of the Deepwater Horizon as Kurt.

He recently won multiple 8-figure verdicts against a large energy company who allowed a plant explosion to harm dozens of people in Louisiana. When the company refused to offer a fair settlement to its workers, Kurt tried their cases back to back—winning two record-setting verdicts for our clients. The results were so decisive that the company settled with our remaining clients for ten times more than they originally offered.

When insurance companies wrongfully denied, delayed, or underpaid claims in the wake of Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Harvey, our clients were left with nothing. Insurance companies often use these tactics to force businesses and homeowners to give up on their claims—statistically, it works. However, Kurt had the privilege of taking their claims to court and recovering everything they had lost in the storms.

Attorney Kurt Arnold has successfully fought against pharmaceutical giants, titans of the energy industry, and the largest insurance companies in the world—all in the name of helping regular people get their lives back. This has rightfully earned Kurt a reputation as a national leader in catastrophic personal injury litigation.

His recognition includes selection to Best Lawyers® for Admiralty and Maritime Law, as well as Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs. Lawdragon has named Kurt to their list of 500 Leading Lawyers in America, and the National Law Journal has included him on their Elite Trial Lawyer Top 50 List. Kurt is also one of the youngest lawyers in Texas history to earn a place on the Texas Super Lawyer® List (and has been named to the Top 100 in both Houston and Texas), and has been included in the Top 40 Under 40 lists from both the National Trial Lawyers and the Houston Business Journal.
